Unless you're really into cars (which we are not), we would highly recommend doing the factory tour. It's a free tour but you must book in advance, you cannot get tickets on site (http://www.toyota.co.jp/en/about_toyota/facility/toyota_kaikan/plant_tour/index.html). Our tour took us specifically into the Assembly Line in the Takaoka Plant and taught us about Just-In-Time, Kanban and Jidoka. Very interesting to see humans... More

To tour the factory you must have a reservation. It is free and can easily be done online via their website. Take your confirmation paperwork for ease of check in. The journey from Nagoya to Tsuchihashi Station to Toyota Kaikan was a little daunting … 1 subway, 2 trains and a taxi so to be sure we allowed 2 hours,... More

This is an exhibition hall as opposed to a museum. Here you will find displays of Toyota technology including a trumpet playing robot and an individual people mover. There is an exhibition room where you can get up close to new models of Toyota automobiles, and usually one or two Toyota race cars complete with the wear and tear of... More

We had to go to Nagoya, and this was one of the places recommended by friends who'd lived in Nagoya. It's kind of a pain to get to, but we were able to book an English language tour, and the Toyota people lent us a wheelchair. The factory was not as hot as I feared (this being July), and it... More

This is fairly out of the way but if you are in the area it is worth a visit. You can see all the latest cars many of which are not available in the US. You can climb into them with the exception of the $375K super car. You will be able to see on computer screens how they make... More

I went to the Toyota kaikan museum with great expectations. Sadly, I did not find the museum worth the long train ride from Nagoya (1.5 hrs). The Kaikan is half museum, half showroom. I would not recommend the visit of the museum for itself. But, I gave a 3* review because of the Toyota plant visit. After a short bus... More

Incredible visit to Toyota's HQ. The Kaikan is well presented, and some good overview of the manufacturing process. I thought it was good to see this first, then go on the tour of the plant, because in the kaikan, there was lots of displays about the robotic side of production. The factory tour itself was to the Takaoka plant, where... More
