Japanese car license plates/Японские номера автомобилей

Here is an example of a typical Japanese car license plate. It contains the following elements (left to right, top to bottom):

1. Place that issued the license plate. In this case the plate was issued in the Iwate prefecture (岩手).
2. Car classification. "500" means that it is a small passenger car with the engine size not more than 2000 cc.
3. Letter わ and numbers 75-63 is the actual car number. License plates with the letter わ are only issued to rental vehicles.

Вот пример типичного японского номерного знака автомобиля. Он содержит следующие информационные элементы (слева направо сверху вниз):

1. Местность, где зарегистрирован автомобиль, в данном случае это провинция Иватэ (岩手).
2. Классификация автомобиля. Номер 500 означает что это малый пассажирский автомобиль с объемом двигателя не более 2000 кубических сантиметров.
3. Буква わ (wa) и номер 75-63 это и есть номер автомобиля. В данном случае он интересен тем, что номера с буквой わ выдается только тем автобилям, которые используются напрокат.

  2. Oh yeah... there is a million different brands here, it is almost impossible to know them all. It seems like they are creating a new brand every new year. Interesting question, let me check on that :)
