Nagoya City

Aichein bonsai nursery is located in Nagoya Japan, so naturally I spend a lot of time here.  Walking around taking photos is one of my favorite ways to relax when I have the time.  Not only is it fun, it’s also an affordable activity for a bonsai apprentice.  Free.

Toyota Commemorative Museum in Nagoya

On one of my days off I took the train into the heart of the city and visited the Toyota Commemorative Museum.  What a cool place!  Great history about the Toyota company and a lot of cool old machines. One of the most impressive thing about this museum is that the majority of the machines here are kept in working condition, with many of them being demonstrated thought out the day.  Here are a few pics from my trip.  Toyota got it’s start with cotton processing equipment, then worked their way into the automotive and aviation industries.  Strong company!
