Toyota Automobile Museum – Nagoya – May 2017

Since I was going through Nagoya on the way to Sendai, I decided to stop by the Toyota Automobile Museum. There were 2 main reasons.

  1. Toyota Estima (TCR10W) in great condition and same color as my previa.
  2. Toyota 2000GT – I don’t think I will ever see one in my life.

Anything else was a plus.

After getting to Nagoya Station, I had to catch the Subway Higashiyama line for Fujigaoka station, then jump on the Linimo line. (maps here

I got there late, tired from running and wet from the rain. The ladies told me I only had 30 minutes left, I told them its all I needed to see those cars. They asked me where I was from, I told them San Francisco.

As I was getting money to pay, they said not to worry and enjoy!

I ran up to the 3rd floor and was greet by another lady and she showed me around and took my picture next to the Estima.

I was granted access to the cars and able to open the doors and take pictures of the interiors.


It was definitely worth it. While I did take an abbreviated visit, no tour guide, the staff that let me get close to the cars and take pictures were awesome.
