[ The Sepia Collection ]
The Sepia Collection is a privately owned “nostalgic car collection” owned by a Mr. Hideki Matsuzaki 秀樹 松崎 (pictured above) and is situated in Kurume, Fukuoka Prefecture on Kyūshū Island in south-west Japan.
The collection hosts more than 120 classic cars and trucks, a large percentage of which are vintage kei-cars. The museum is open at weekends and by special arrangement through the week to large groups from 9am-9pm. A DVD video of the museum is available and as stocks are continually changing, a small selection of vehicles are always for sale.

I will be visiting Japan in November 2016 and will be seeing the collection on Friday the 18th, where hopefully I will be able to make a short film and possibly have an interview with Mr. Matsuzaki.
