In 1933, an automobile division was set up in Aichi Steel Co., Ltd.'s Kariya plant, and the following year in 1934 a prototype plant was established that was comprised of facilities including a sheet metal/assembly factory and materials testing center.
The building, which can be toured, has been restored as a site where Toyota cars were first developed.
We hope to honor our predecessors who embarked on the challenge of making cars from scratch with the aim of "making cars on our own hands and establishing the Japanese automotive industry."
