Toyota City is an industrial city east of Nagoya in Aichi Prefecture, central Japan, west of Toyohashi.
Toyota was previously known as Koromo (挙母) until 1959, when the name of the city was changed to Toyota city to reflect the importance of the town's major employer - Toyota Motor Corporation.
The Toyota Sangyo Bunka Center (Toyota Industrial Culture Center) is also the venue for a number of community activities and classes including language, dance and yoga.
Visitors can try their hand at producing crafts, and sample traditional macha green tea in a reconstructed tea house.
The park around the Toyota-shi Mingei-kan is popular for its cherry blossom in spring and maple leaves in the fall.
Matsudaira-go, also in the east of Toyota City, is an area of historic interest and natural beauty.
It was in this place that the Matsudaira clan had its base and it was Matsudaira Takechiyo, who later changed his name to Tokugawa Ieyasu, who was to become the supreme leader of Japan in 1603 and begin the Tokugawa shogunate that was to rule Japan until 1867.
