Citroëns Pop Up In The Most Unexpected Places

You may recall that last year we posted about 2 Traction Avants in Hanoi, Vietnam that are being used as limousines for the Sofitel Metropole Hotel, a big old prestigious hotel there. It was Citroënvie member James McMahon who spotted them.

Well, James was recently shopping among small hotels for an upcoming trip to Hakone, Japan, a rural mountain lake town that’s a popular get-away for Tokyo residents, One of the hotels called The Box uses this photo, which features a nice looking 2CV out front!
