Based on the shape and color of the license plates, it looks like Japan.
Tried to find the person with the drone controller, but couldn't spot him.

I'm gonna hazard a guess and say more China/Hong Kong than Japan.

That was my first guess, too, but remembered that HK plates were rectangular. Plates in Japan are a similar shape to U.S. plates. All the cars in the video have the US-style dimensions. .

HK/China plates can also have the square style plates of Japan. Actually, its kind of a fad over there.

Spent a bit of time in HK years ago for work but haven't been back there for ages. Interesting that they've adopted more than one style of plate.

Acura, Diahatsu, Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki and Toyota.

Have drone will travel...this is the one hubby is currently using to 'practice' with:

Amazon.com: Hubsan 61170-02 4 Channel 2.4GHz RC Quad ter with 720p HD Camera (Green/Black): Toys & Games

He is purchasing this one for our October meet and, of course, to have fun with:

http://www.amazon.com/DJI-Phantom-Vi...camera+and+gps

So far he's flown into our neighbors garage (without them knowing it was him) and videoed their expression...priceless!

No one is safe now!
