Welcome to Toyota City!

[My mom told me that my brother asked when I was gonna blog again. So, this one is for you, Malik!! I love you!]


Did you know that the car company TOYOTA has a city? If not, now you do! It's located in Japan. Their headquarters, a factory and a museum can all be found in the small city! And I got to visit! The factory was so legit. The way they made the cars is just so efficient. I have a new found respect for folks that build cars. I don't think I could do it. And I also learned Japan doesn't have the same Toyota models as the United States. I actually like the Japanese models better, but what can ya do? The experience inside the factory was pretty exciting. Makes me want to go to other car factories. Unfortunately, I didn't get to take pictures from inside the factory. But below are a few from the museum which was also pretty nice.

I wasn't able to capture the whole sign, but you get the idea.

Toyota made this robot. It's at the entrance of the museum and it plays a song a few times in afternoon. While we were there, it played "Over the Rainbow". Pretty good.

A little beyond the robot is the showroom.

I want to drive on the other side of the road one day. Hopefully I won't kill anyone.

This is the slogan of the company. Well, at least at the Japanese factory.

I have to agree with Malik...the Toyota museum is pretty cool. It makes me feel like I've been japed. The i-unit looks so futuristic that I could only image it in movies, and the cute little blue car you were in looks like you wouldn’t have to fluid it for a month...nice.

Sincerely,
Standing on the side-walk (if your driving on the other side of the street)
