This year, we’ve seen some of the best concept vehicles and customized cars. Thus, we know that you are wildly anticipating the upcoming Japan car events. So, in this post, we are going to discuss some of the top auto shows to watch out for in 2019.

Tokyo Auto Salon

Date: January 11-13, 2019

Venue: Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex, Chiba Prefecture


What people love about the Tokyo Auto Salon is its light and fun vibe. Last year, there are a number of new concept vehicles, including the Subaru VIZIV Performance STI Concept and the Toyota GR Super Sports Concept. However, this auto show is more known for the crazy tuner varieties.

Aside from concept vehicles, you can expect to see cars with dress-up parts and accessories. There are also auto-related video games, motorsport merchandise, and aftermarket components, among other products for sale.

11th Automotive World

Date: January 16-18, 2019

Venue: Tokyo Big Sight, Ariake District


The Automotive World claims to be ‘the world’s largest exhibition for advanced automotive technologies.’ It is a combination of conferences and exhibitions related to automotive electronics, autonomous driving, connected car, EV/HEV/FCV, and lightweight technology, among others. This is one of the Japan auto shows that rapidly grows every year. On January, you can expect to hear the latest in the automotive industry from the bigwigs – Toyota’s Managing Officer, Kenji Yamamoto, Honda Aero’s President and CEO, Atsukuni Waragai, and Volkswagen’s Head of Automated Driving Research, Helge Neuner, among others.

Osaka Auto Messe

Date: February 9-11, 2019

Venue: Intex Osaka


Established in 1997, the Osaka Auto Messe is one of the biggest Japan car events in the Kansai. Every year, it attracts more than 200,000 visitors who are interested in seeing heavily customized vehicles. This coming February, you can visit the show and expect to see a huge assortment of custom accessories and components that will make your vehicle even more enjoyable to drive.

Nagoya Auto Trend

Date: February 23-24, 2019

Venue: Portmesse Nagoya


If you want to see beautifully tuned, dressed, and customized cars, then the Nagoya Auto Trend is the ideal auto show for you. It sits among the ranks of the Tokyo Auto Salon and the Osaka Auto Messe as one of the biggest and best ‘tuner’ events in Japan.

Tokyo Motor Show

Date: October 24-November 4, 2019

Venue: Tokyo Big Sight, Ariake District


The Tokyo Motor Show is undeniably one of the biggest motor exhibitions/conventions in Japan. It is worth noting that it is one of the key events on the worldwide motoring calendar. There’s an added hype surrounding the event due to the fact that it follows a bi-annual schedule.

You can expect to see the future of the motoring industry when you visit this auto show. Most of the vehicles on display are something that is not ready to be driven right away. Needless to say, this is the concept vehicle territory. The Tokyo Motor Show last 2017 showcased the industry’s interest for powerful engines, as well as the ever-increasing concern over environmental protection, global warming, and sustainability. Naturally, hybrid vehicles were among the most popular features of the last show.

When it comes to presentation and atmosphere, the Tokyo Motor Show is the epitome of motoring glamor. Some of the models on display look as if they came from a dystopian future.
