Nagoya & Shin Toyota visit, Japan


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

So wifey and I visit Japan about 3 months ago, and I immediately put Nagoya on our map of travel. It was a purposeful diversion stop off on the way from Tokyo to Kyoto, so it was meant to be.

We ended up going to the Toyota Automotive Museum in Nagoya, which is just fantastic for car nutters who like (or don't like cars) in general.

The next day, we took a 1.5 hour train ride from Nagoya to Shin-Toyota, where Toyota's global headquarters were. At the meeting point, they had a few cars on display, but not as the museum of course. Our main reason for going to Shin-Toyota was to catch a Toyota bus ride to one of many Toyota's manufacturing plants for a plant tour. We ended up going to a plant assembling our aussie Rav4's, which I thought was quite special (as most of the tourist on our tour slot were Amercian's).

Anyway, here's a few pics of all things Lexus!

Enjoy!

Nice pics.  We can only dream about the LFA.  When i got my airbag recall done last week, saw the LC500 up close and personal.  Definitely makes an impression and would stand out on the road, nothing subtle about the styling like the ISF lol.  Would be too nervous having that as a daily ride.  Someone would be bound to run into it not paying attention.
