Officially, it’s called the Toyota Automobile Museum but I prefer to think of it as a display of the Toyoda family’s private car collection – a Mekkah of automotive history.
That’s because there is something from every decade and even more so from the heyday of Japanese automotive with legends such as the 2000GT, the Mitsubishi Galant GTO, the Honda S500 and everything else in between.
The only regret I had was not having enough time to spend in the museum as a collection this comprehensive requires at least half a day to fully observe everything in detail.
We’re not just talking about physical cars here; there were emblems you’ve probably not seen before, thousands of die cast models and not to mention original brochures for cars like the Mitsubishi Evolution and Porsche 911 from when they were first launched.
There is unlikely to be another place such as this on Planet Earth. If this place could be rated by Michelin stars, it would receive three without a doubt – which means you should travel to that country just to see/experience it.
What a treat it is for petrolheads!
