The motoring year is rounded off by the Tokyo Motor Show, which is held every other year at the Tokyo Big Sight conference centre in the heart of Japan's capital.
Not to be confused with the Tokyo Auto Salon, which is held at the start of the year and is a tuning show along similar lines to the SEMA show held in Las Vegas, the Tokyo Motor Show is held late in every odd-numbered year and is one of the world's top car shows with a huge array of new production cars and concepts on display.
The Tokyo Motor Show is uniquely Japanese in flavour, and frequently attracts larger numbers of interesting concept cars than other shows, particularly from the domestic manufacturers like Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mazda and Subaru.
As well as the weird and wonderful concepts, there's always a large number of new production cars, primarily from the Japanese brands. Not all of these new models tend to be destined for European markets but a significant proportion always are.
