Japan Trading Direct buys classic cars in Japan and Southeast Asia and exports them to buyers around the world.

Founding Director and car enthusiast Nick Shotter, from the UK, established Japan Trading Direct in 1997.

Over the last 20 years Nick has built a friendly, professional, trained team skilled in classic cars, Japanese car auctions, documentation and exports. We are strategically based in the shipping hub of Nagoya, Japan.
We pride ourselves on being the go-to company for locating air-cooled Porsche’s such as the Porsche 356, Porsche 73RS, Porsche 74 Carrera, Porsche 964RS, Porsche 993RS and the Porsche 993GT2.

Last year we were a proud sponsor of the Japan Carerra Cup.

Our trained staff have over 35 years of experience with classic Ferraris such as F40, F50, F360 Challenge Stradale, Mercedes 190 Evolution, BMW E30 M3, Alpina and Lancia Delta Integrale Evolution.

We combine expertise with excellent customer service to make it a rewarding journey.
