good chance to see Toyota's development stages and latest models. Also you can see the simulations about Toyota's production technology.

Getting to the Hall is a journey worth making. It's not tricky and we found the directions on the actual Toyota museum website accurate. They are pretty strict on start time so if you are late, you miss the tour. The plant tour was fascinating. Even if you are not a car enthusiast, you can't help but marvel at the... More

If you've never visited an auto manufacturing plant elsewhere, then here's your chance! This museum and plant tour are on the extensive grounds of Toyota's world headquarters. Tours are available in several languages; best bet is to reserve your tour time/language in advance using the internet. Plan to spend at least half an hour before your tour to wander around... More

By way of some background, my spouse is a Toyota truck fan. I am not the least bit interested in motor vehicles...or so I thought before taking this tour. We booked an English-speaking tour online (the website is very user friendly). Getting to the Toyota Kaikan Museum is a bit of a challenge and requires some careful planning; note that... More

While Toyota is quite out of the way, it is definitely worth the effort to make a visit. The factory tour is very interesting and watching the robots at work is captivating. I'd not seen anything like it before. Also of note was the tour guide who was perfectly groomed like an air hostess, spoke an extremely polite english and... More

You need to make a reservation by internet ahead of time and show up at the Toyota Kaikan Museum, which requires a couple of trains from Nagoya, and for us was another train from Kyoto. The Museum, next to Toyota's Headquarters, is basically a large Toyota showroom but not very impressive. It's more than a what you see at a... More

While it was interesting to look at Toyota's latest innovation and even try out some of technology on display, it was the factory tour that took our breath away. It shows how technology is improving the production efficiency while trying to reduce quality issues. Definitely worth checking it out.

Although there are not much exhibits at the exhibition hall, the main highlight is the factory tour. We got to see how the Toyoya cars were produce with the high workmanship quality and checks in placed. It needs to be booked in advance from Toyota's website. Best of all, the tour is free, Just need to book it in advance.

We booked the English tour way in advance after reading a CNN report on it. It is worth the side trip from Nagoya to see this(and it is free). The exhibit hall has pretty much all the latest products from Toyota, but the juice is the tour to the assembly line, about 20-30 minutes by factory bus (provided). One single... More

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
