Toyota Kaikan Museum

Looking for a private car service to Toyota Kaikan Museum? Located in Toyota City in Aichi Prefecture right next to the headquarters of Toyota Motor Corporation, the Toyota Kaikan Museum was built in 1977 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Toyota Motor Corporation. The city was originally named as Koromo City because it used to be an important silk production area during the Meiji era. However, due to the establishment of automotive brand Toyota, the city was renamed in 1959, and it has become the only city in Japan named after the company. To help more people to understand the automobile industry, the Toyota Kaikan Museum is open to the public for free. Receiving about 5 million of visitors every years, it served as an education base for people to understand automobile technology.
