Nagoya has a museum that has more than 4,000 pieces, and a large part of them are original, through which the visitor learns about Toyota’s history. The start was with the textile industry, as Sakichi Toyoda (the father of Toyota Motors’ founder), invented the first manual fabric knitting machine in 1890 after being inspired by his mother’s work and wanted to give her rest as she got older. He then developed it in stages. He visited the United States, where he liked the manufacturing of cars and wished to take it to Japan, so his son took on the mission after graduating from university in 1920 to join the company’s technicians.
Visitors of the exhibition will see some of the most magnificent cars that shone in the history of Toyota, including the AA model, which was the first car produced by the company in April 1936, and had great success in the following decades around the world, and presented itself among the car industry giants.
