Making a spectacular return to Tokyo after 24-years, the Tokyo Motor Show seeks to be the world's leading technology motor show. "Mobility can change the world." is its theme. Automobiles are more than just transportation; they now offer solutions to issues such as our environment, safety, and energy. The new theme delivers a bright message for the future of the automobile industry.

The poster design depicts a mixture of tires, lights, and car body, expressing the changes in vehicles through their evolution. It offers the promise of a motor show for everyone to enjoy and the characteristic lure and anticipation of the unknown offered from cutting-edge technologies.

The logo on the poster has been used since 1954, when Tokyo hosted the first Tokyo Motor Show. The show's return to its original city represents a return to fundamentals—a desire to appeal to the world through excellent Japanese automobiles and the technology that moves them.
