What you'll do
I will take you to the members-only auction as my guest. After a brief description of the Japanese car auction history—the first computer-based auction in the world—I'll explain the database system and ask you to choose a few of your favorite cars. We will then go out to the viewing area, where up to 10,000 cars are on display, and inspect the chosen cars. The area could include everything from Toyota Corollas to $300,000 Ferraris and Japanese supercars. You'll be able to start a few engines, kick a few tires, or simply have your photo taken in the car of your dreams. You’ll discover how Japanese technology and efficiency enable up to 10,000 cars to be sold every week—something unique toJapan. Lastly, we will visit the buyers room, which resembles more of a NASA spaceship launch control, and watch how multiple cars are sold electronically with the uniquely Japanese high-tech buying system. The Japanese car auction is famous and unique in the world for its sheer size, technology, and display of cars, and this experience will amaze even those without any interest in cars. For those people actually looking to buy a car, yes, that is possible too. -Please message me beforehand. If the tour is not available on the day you are in Tokyo, let me know and I should be able to create a private tour on another day at another venue.
Join me on this exclusive "members-only" experience as my guest and learn everything there is to know about the world-famous Japanese car auctions. These wholesale auctions are open only to licensed dealers, so as my guest, you'll have exclusive access to what is generally closed to the public. I've worked as a buyers agent and I've attended the auctions as part of my work for over 10 years, and I have extensive knowledge of the auction system and how it nowadays connects with the rest of the world, supplying used vehicles to many countries overseas. Aside from this tour, I also take customers to car night meets on Friday and Saturday nights, which often have an awesome display of high performance/modified cars on display. If you are interested to join, please send me a message. The following video shows!: https://youtu.be/bVDj3ioswpg
