Where is this Tokyo Auto Salon?
A: It will be held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba prefecture of Tokyo, Japan. And our hotel will be in Ikebukuro. That’s about one hour away by train, 42 minutes by car and 35.5km by foot. That should let you know how near or far it is.

I’m a Tokyo virgin? What should I bring with me to Japan?
A: It is winter in Japan at that time so be sure to pack in some winter clothing. Lip balm, gloves, headgear, scarves and anything to keep you warm. Snow might fall too so be prepared for that too like grippy and snow proof shoes.
I’m a TAS virgin? What should I bring with me to the event?
A: Some thick clothes and jackets because it is winter season in January. You don’t want to be frozen throughout the day (when you hang out at the car parks, they have cool cars out there too) and also backpacks if you are planning to carry some freebies or to buy lots of stuff during the event.
I want to buy a car. Will there be ATMs/ cash machines inside the event ground?
A: There is no cash machines inside the event ground. So bring enough cash for the event. Besides, they don’t really sell cars there anyway but if you manage to make them, there are a few ways to withdraw cash from the international ATM machines in the post offices.
I’m worried I’ll starve. Can I bring food and drinks in with me?
A: Yes you can but only dried or instant food. KLIA and the airlines has regulations. At TAS, food and drinks are also available in the main halls as well as throughout the exhibition space. Prices are essentially the same cost as they are outside, so no need to stockpile beforehand. But it’s non-halal for muslims. It is safer to eat seafood for Muslims. We will advice on the day itself.
I want to rumble with my camera and take loads of pictures. Can I bring my DSLR into the event grounds?
A: Yes you can but just don’t take photos of the queen from the back or under. It is just RUDE.
