The 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013
Odaiba Motor Festival
- The Odaiba area to be adorned with cars and motorcycles

  • JNR-2013-38
  • September 19, 2013

In a new initiative, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, Inc. (Chairman: Akio Toyoda) will hold the “Odaiba Motor Festival” on November 16 (Sat) and 17 (Sun), the week before the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show 2013, as well as during the Show itself. This event will offer more opportunities for youth and families to come in contact with cars and motorcycles and directly sense their appeal.

This car and motorcycle event in the overall Odaiba area will extend our reach to a broader base of car and motorcycle fans. Our aim is to promote the automobile industry and Japan’s economy by extension, as well as to boost excitement for the Tokyo Motor Show.
