Earlier this year, the first annual  Moehaku 萌え博 2010 show was held at the Makuhari Messe Convention Center in Tokyo. Moehaku is an exhibition of itasha decorated cars. Itasha is a Japanese term for an otaku fad of decorating cars with  anime, manga, or video games characters.

At Moehaku the car decorations usually involved paint schemes and stickers and while decorated cars  are called itasha, decorated motorcycles are called itansha while decorated bicycles are  itachari.

Besides the cars, there were plenty of games and a large group of cosplayers who attended.
