Toyota Museum (トヨタ博物館)

トヨタ博物館

History lesson in Toyota Museum (Nagoya, Japan)

These types of museums aren’t normally my thing, but when you don’t have any plans on a brutally hot and humid summer day in Nagoya this is a decent place to be. Unlike the museums I visited on this same trip in Korea, this one had air conditioning. I had no desire to leave.

Part of this museum deals with Toyota’s first business (when they were known as Toyoda), the mechanical loom. The rest is, of course, about the automobiles and includes many early models. Japanese models/tour guides are happy to tell you more than you’d like to know about the cars. I don’t know if the models speak English, but most of the displays are in (broken) English as well as Japanese.
