Caught an early morning Shinkansen to reach this place. Spent the first half in the plant tour. It was like any other plant tour and was available in English. However, online reservations are required beforehand. The museum however, is a must visit for Toyota production system enthusiasts ! Can spend at least 2 hours going through all the information available

A very delightful trip. Toyota gives out everything free and the tour let you understand more about the brand. Must see

I'm not into cars all that much (at time of writing I've never driven) but I still found the Toyota museum and factory really interesting from a technology perspective. I highly recommend you have a look if you're staying in Nagoya. Tour: It's free but you need to book in advance (by at least a few days). You get to... More

As I highly recommend this interesting experience, I do warn it is too big of an effort to get there only for the exhibition room. If you can book a tour, I would say it is definitely worthwhile if you are in the area, of passing in the area. About a special trip if you – I would say that... More

A mixed bag of interest here. The museum (exhibition hall) is basically an exaltation of the Toyota brand with marketing oriented exhibits and a few concept cars. Half the space is given over to a glorified new car showroom. But one doesn't really come here for the museum ... it's the plant tour which is the draw. First, know it... More

We waited for a few months in great anticipation and must say we were not at all disappointed. The Toyota Kaikan Museum visit was very educational and insightful with the company's history, key milestones and emerging technology advances in the very competitive automotive industry. The 2 hours visit to the manufacturing plant was definitely the highlight of the visit. There... More

Wonderful display of current Toyota cars and historical exhibits and tutorials on Toyota car company. Gift shop is woefully overpriced, but really nothing to buy there anyway

I was in the area so went to the Toyota HQ museum. I had hoped to see a selection of their historical cars and traverse journey through the history of the company. Unfortunately, at this location, they just had current models including their high end race cars. Interesting for some I'm sure but wasn't engaging for me. As a plus,... More

If you come here then chances are you're going on the plant tour - make sure you do. The tour is really interesting and it's really interesting to be able to see an operating Toyota plant. The Kaikan museum is an interesting way to see the newest Toyota models as well as some additional information about the cars while waiting... More
