2019 Tokyo Motor Show Expands with 1.5-Kilometer Open Road Exhibit


For a period of 12 days, the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association or JAMA will hold the 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019. Confirmed to participate are 186 companies from seven countries. The show will not only offer vehicle displays, but will actually enable visitors to see how future mobility will look like, and how it will be integrated into the urban living experience of the not-so-distant future.

This year’s theme of “Open Future” is appropriate as the Tokyo Motor Show will not only encompass Odaiba’s Ariake area (where Tokyo Big Sight is), but will also, for the first time, extend to the Aomi area as well. Using a 1.5-kilometer open road connecting the two areas, organizers have created a vast mobility theme park for visitors to the show. On hand are personal or micro-mobility models along with exhibits and displays featuring wide-ranging examples of mobility not just on land, but air and sea as well.

Meanwhile, a Future Expo at the Megaweb will have visitors experience a “typical day in the near future.”  Visitors will view and interact with the more than 100 items and cutting-edge technologies and services on display. The Megaweb will also be the site for the FIA Gran Turismo Championship 2019 World Tour 5 as well as GR Supra GT-CUP one-make race.

Various zones within the Tokyo Motor Show venue will be accessible free of charge, to encourage people who might not otherwise visit the Tokyo Motor Show to come and enjoy show-related exhibits and activities.

The 46th Tokyo Motor Show 2019 starts on Thursday, October 24 to Monday, November 4, 2019.
