  • Really clean and well organized time capsule of the automobile industry that is pretty reasonably accessible from Nagoya. There are more than just Toyota cars here, and the cars have been reconstructed beautifully. In addition, the staff speak excellent English (and are, of course, very modest about it). If you happen to be in the area, it is a worthwhile trip (approximately $10 per person, $8 if you bring your AAA card).
  • Honestly I'm not a Toyota Fans, I'm a Mercedes/Honda fans, but I'm glad I came here, every motorhead should come here once, this is one of the part of Automobile History, and there's LFA prototype-00, damm I wished I can step on that LFA and start the engine.

  • Pieces of Motoring History across all makes. Compact chronological layout up to the 70s. With a new annex connected. ¥1000 /adult
  • Cars are a big part of history, and this Museum has some priceless parts. Not only Toyota, but several classics from around the world. Take a couple hours and peruse history and the future.
