Toyota City showcase at Megaweb

Written by Cheryl Tay on . Posted in Cheryl Tay Blog | Blog Post of Cheryl Tay

I didn’t have time to go to Toyota City and check it out so the next best thing was to go to this Toyota City showcase at MegaWeb – it’s located just opposite the Tokyo Big Sight, where the Tokyo Motorshow this year is to be held. I headed there yesterday after visiting Autobacs…

The Toyota City showcase at MegaWeb is just a showroom actually – I’m sorry I don’t have more exciting photos, but I’m just showing you what I saw for myself!

There were quite a lot of stuff on the ground level…

I went to do a little shopping at that Euro Sports store (see picture below) -

… it sold lots of Formula 1 merchandise and other racing memorabilia! I found these puppets quite freaky though – especially the Bernie Ecclestone ones!

The Toyota showroom extends to the second level…

… where a Lexus showroom is tucked away in a corner next to the cafe:

Look – the IS350C! I only got to try the Lexus IS250C…

388038_295428093824768_131620790205500_921581_184555584_nToyota has a History Garage at this facility too, but it was located at another side of the facility and to get there I had to walk through the mall. I totally didn’t mind the walk, simply for two reasons: a) there was a Hello Kitty land at the entrance (to be blogged about in separate entry) and b) there was this series of drool-worthy classics in the walkway…

The first one in line is this Nissan Skyline KPGC10:

Don’t you just want to bring that Skyline home? Next in line is the Isuzu 117 Coupe!

I think it’s wonderful that these ‘uncles’ (or should I say ‘grandfathers’?) are still around in pristine condition. Here’s the Soarer:

The last one in the line of display is my all-time favourite – the Fairlady! Nothing beats the original…

383651_295432403824337_131620790205500_921622_6187987_n

And that was it!

 

I couldn’t have asked for a better ‘appetiser’ on my way to the Toyota History Garage…

Unfortunately, the History Garage was closed!!! I think there was some media event or something, as I remember seeing a photo of some car in the Toyota History Garage that Speedhunters posted up on the same day.

 

Oh well! This was all that I got to see of the Toyota History Garage…

Maybe I can come by if I am done early at the Tokyo Motorshow on Wednesday!

 

Since the History Garage was not open, I went to check out Hello Kitty land instead…
