You need to book the factory tour well in advance on line. There is no charge. The plant is quite a ways from Nagoya station, we took 2 trains and then walked 15 minutes. Total time of 1 hour and 16 minutes from the station....More

It's truly humbling to witness the level of mindful progress that takes place at Toyota. The museum had no shortage of displays (some even hands-on for the kiddos, or *ahem* kiddos at heart), and they do well to showcase the forward-minded thinking that goes on...More

Toyota has done a fabulous job of explaining it's current and future technologies. They even let you ride the Winglet - their personal mobility solution. Kids loved it.

We came for the car plant tour, and were an hour early. There was a collection of new Toyotas and a mediocre gift shop and we didn't realise there were other more interesting exhibits. After the two hour plant tour, we were bussed back here....More

Ok, I guess I may be biased after seeing automobile assembly plant tours at Mini in Oxford (best I’ve been on), BMW welt in Munich, and Mercedes museum in Stuttgart. This was comparatively dull. Of course if this is your first automobile assembly plant tour,...More

The museums a little hard to find. The museum itself is OK - lots of jnfo on Toyotas work on reducing the environmental impact of their products. But the factory tour is amazing and well worth booking into - it departs at 11 and lasts...More

The routing is best done in the Japan official travel app. It has the option of optimising for the JR pass. It does a fairly good job of giving options. The tour is about 2 and half hours. Travel time is extra.

I stayed in the Daiwa Roynet Hotel Nagoya ekimae. Its close to Nagoya Station. It took me approximately 1hr20mins to get to get there but I would allow more time as a precaution. Hope you enjoy!
