There’s Nothing Fairly Like Tokyo Auto Salon

I’ve climbed Uluru in Australia in nothing however flip flops. I’ve hiked by means of the UK’s Lake District in the midst of winter. And I’ve endured three full days at Goodwood, twice. None of those although ready me for the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon.

The Makuhari Messe in Chiba is considered one of Japan’s largest exhibition facilities, and as everybody is aware of, each January it performs hosts one of many greatest automotive reveals on the planet. Apart from final yr after all. With 4 halls totalling over one million sq. ft of floorspace, I actually ought to have introduced an electrical scooter for my very first time on the occasion.

Over the subsequent week or so I’ll be exhibiting you two days’ price of TAS carpark content material, jam-packed with all of the automobiles you wish to see, and all those your bizarre buddy desires as effectively.


For me, the carpark was really the perfect a part of Tokyo Auto Salon, and I’ll get into the why within the full put up. However that’s to not say that what I noticed contained in the North, West, Central and East halls was uninteresting. Oh, fairly the opposite.


Making an attempt to make head or tail of the behemoth that’s TAS was formidable to say the least. Fortunately, I had present veteran Dino readily available to clarify among the key factors of the extravaganza, which helped me to focus my consideration and make some sense of all of it.

Once I met up with him backstage on the Yokohama sales space, Dino had already spent the Thursday (occasion arrange) and Friday (media day) on the present, so hats off to him for nonetheless having the ability to bodily stand on days three and 4 (the primary public occasion days).


Dino had seen a robust kyusha presence this yr, in order that grew to become an enormous focus of my protection. I’ll even be exhibiting you among the bizarre kei automobiles and different oddities that Tokyo Auto Salon is known for.


So far as I do know, Dino will likely be geeking out over a variety of the brand new tech that was on show, in addition to numerous spotlights on his favorite builds. So strap your self in, that is going to be mega.


I can’t wait to start out sorting by means of the a whole lot of pictures that I took, and I’m positive Dino will likely be doing the identical. Though please enable me a protracted scorching soak in a shower and not less than three hours sleep first…
