Toyota is a city in Aichi in Japan, close to Nagoya. Toyota is - unsurprisingly - the seat of the headquarter of the namesake car company and several car factories.

It was in fact named after the car company (and not the other way round).

Get in

Toyota is rather difficult to reach by public transport. Despite being close to the Tokaido-Shinkansen, it has no Shinkansen station, and it does not even have direct connections to nearby Shinkansen stations. The closest Shinkansen stations are Toyohashi, Mikawa-Anjo and Nagoya, with Nagoya having the fastest connections to Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Toyota's main train station is called Toyota-shi, and approximately one hour from any of the Shinkansen stations, requiring changing trains at least once.

Get around

Toyota is, untypical for Japan, a car city with a very good road network and very sparse public transportation.






Rickey's (on the 1st floor of the multi-purpose Vits building 100 m south of Toyotashi station, open until 2am) is the only Western pub in town, and as such usually well-frequented by locals and Toyota expats from all over the world.
