  • Many people group tourist bus went alone. He and Toyota in the world, great description. Take a look at, hear and see. I think I take only 1 hour time on the go also.

  • Here you can find out how in 3 generations the Toyoda family came from a lonely village in Japan to one of the biggest conglomerates in the world. We all know about Toyotas (don't even need to say cars). But they actually came from the textile industry. The exhibits are very informative and they have a very good guided tour program if you are interested. Closed on Mondays and sometimes Tuesdays.
  • I strongly encourage attending one of the free guided 45 minute tours (check times before you attend). Entrance is ¥500 and the guided tours add a great deal to the experience. The museum is very interactive and the tour provides a great deal of background information on both sections of the museum that you don't get from the plaques which are written in Japanese as well as English. You can take a great deal away from simply exploring yourself, however, I found it even more rewarding returning to the areas the tour went through after the fact. The tour gives you great background into the history and explains things not written and grants access to much more info and experiences. We went anticipating to spend two hours and spent half the day there! A very enjoyable part of Nagoya.
  • Big respect to the founders. Excellent exhibits. Eye opening. Don't miss this attraction if you're in Nagoya.
  • A place to visit to understand Toyota philosophy. Budding automotive engineering student can learn more here then spending one semester in college. Please take your time and enjoy the display and info.
  • It is an extremely excellent value, combined with informative hands-on demonstrations and wonderfully setup presentations. Surprisingly, many staff members speak English and always are willing to interact and even hand out souvenirs. Additionally, the automotive section is absolutely a gem for anyone who has ever seen something called an automobile. Just go. It's only 500 yen.

Where to stay in Nagoya

The central district, just south from the castle and its gardens, houses the bulk of accommodations in Nagoya. You'll find a good range of standard hotels, with onsite restaurants, simple rooms, and perhaps a pool in this area. Look slightly to the west, or closer to the castle,to find more luxurious accommodations. Across the surrounding residential areas, take a look close to the metro stations to find some of the most conveniently located, but budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses.
