Toyota Commemorative Museum & Noritake Garden Tour

Nagoya & Aichi Pref


Japan is one of the greatest industrial countries in the world. Its technology center is Aichi Prefecture. The capital of Aichi Prefecture is located in Nagoya where there are two exhibition halls that Japanese are proud of. One is Toyota Motor Company, and the other is the world famous Noritake China. Even though they belong to different categories of business, Japan is very good at both of them. At the root, there exist minutely calculated scientific studies and designs, implementation technologies and supporting spirit of craftsmen. This tour takes you through the 100-year long tradition and the state-of-the-art technology demonstration.

Japan managed to become a member of advanced countries after succeeding an industrial revolution. It’s called a miracle of the Orient.nMajor reasons for the miracle were Japanese people’s educational standards that enabled the easy understanding of European and North American technologies. Especially Japanese developers’ and engineers’ originality and ingenuity that further enhanced the technologies from Europe and North America.nMost of all Sakichi Toyoda often called an Edison of the Orient made a series of inventions.
