Pics from Tokyo Auto Salon 2020

Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 was a great event.  There were so many cool-looking cars and models to photograph.  The event was for three days, but I went only once.  Only once, and now I wish I had gone to all.  Without a doubt, it is the best event of its type in Japan.  It was heaven for photographers.

Makuhari Messe was the venue, and its exhibit halls overflowed with vehicles.  There were over 800 cars.  And some of the best car show models in Japan supported them.

The event created a perfect synergy of hot cars and beautiful models.  Photographers love seeing them.  And Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 was the best place to see them together.  Here are my awards for the best car and girl.

There were many great cars.  My favorite was the 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air from Forgiato Japan.  It got my vote.  I guess I have a thing for classic cars, and it grabbed my eye.  The builders put so many small details into this classic beauty.  When I grow up, I plan to buy one I’ll start saving those one yen coins!

And the models?  Just like the cars, there were so many good ones.  Every time I go to these shows, I see how hard these girls work.  Modeling is challenging, and they work hard at being good at it.  Being under the lights with the makeup, clothes and posing each day must be demanding and tiring.

The top-level models take it to another level.  They have excellent skills, but they also have an incredible connection with the fans.  So many have great on-stage charisma.  It was so hard choosing the winner.

In the end, the Exedy girls came out on top.  They were beautiful, and their outfits were great.  What gave them the nod was the way they interacted with fans and photographers.  They were terrific.  I gave them a perfect score.

Tokyo Auto Salon 2020 was great, and I enjoyed it immensely. I will go to all three days one year as it is impossible to photograph everything in one.  If you have any questions or comments, please leave them below.

It was at Makuhari Messe, the huge convention/exhibition center in Chiba Prefecture.  The closest station to it is Kaihin Makuhari on the Keiyo Line.  From Tokyo Station, it was about a thirty-minute train ride.
