A lot of people asked me for a JDM car database, but I was facing trouble because most websites from Japan are in Japanese language while they needed English specifications. In March 2019 a customer told me about one Japanese website in English and after this I found 3 more similar websites, I choose the best one, coded a scraper and published database for sale in April 2019.

This database include ONLY car models sold in Japanese domestic market (including foreign models sold here) and target people from Japan as well as people from LHD countries in Asia and Africa who import used cars from Japan.

This database does NOT include car models made in Japan exclusively for export, for example Acura and Infiniti (Japanese brands aimed primarily for US market but sold also in Europe and Middle East), or example of Toyota models sold in US market but NOT sold in Japan: 4Runner, C-HR, Cressida, ECHO, Highlander, Matrix, Paseo, Previa, Sequoia, Sienna, T100, Tacoma, Tundra, Venza, Yaris. For these car models you can buy one my American databases.

Note: sales of Japan database been lower than expected. I do scrap makes to get models URLs (takes 2 minutes) then scrap models to get versions URL (takes 40 minutes), so I can monitor how many cars are added. I do scrap versions details (which takes 22 hours) ONLY WHEN someone purchase this database.
