Tokyo Auto Salon, one of the biggest motor shows in the world, is coming back to Makuhari Messe and will showcase modified and tuned cars. Think MTV’s Pimp My Ride, but more luxurious.The event isn’t exactly cheapo, but it’s a must-see if you’re really into cars/things you’ll never be able to afford. This year will be the biggest in the salon’s history with over 300,000 visitors expected.
Note that the whole of the first day is open to industry and media only. Saturday and Sunday are both public entry days with tickets costing ¥3,000 in advance and ¥3,500 on the door.
Toyota Gazoo Racing had a very large display showing real race-cars with real bugs, rocks, chips and other bits on the front.
A bit of a theme - a lot of cars had Liberty Walk or Tra Kyoto body pieces.
Cute bosozoku styled k-cars.
Sparkly (insert your emoji here)
Customize your Prius. This was just one a several so it seems to be a popular thing to do.
