One of our favorite places to visit in Tokyo has always been Toyota’s Megaweb showroom. Located in the Odaiba shopping district, it was perfect for getting a car fix while non-petrolhead traveling companions did some nearby souvenir collecting. Sadly, it has been announced that Megaweb will be shuttering its doors on December 31, 2021.
The sad news was announced this morning, as the real estate company that owns Palette Town, the mall that Megaweb is attached to, is planning to redevelop the site. That means the History Garage (above) classic car showcase, Grease diecast car shop, test drive track, restoration garage and even the giant Ferris wheel just outside the building will all be going away.
It has not been announced what will replace the sprawling complex, but Toyota Motor Corporation will be participating in the redevelopment. Hopefully that means a new showroom to take its place.
