Motor Info Gate

Motor Info Gate is an information service that uses mobile telephones as its interface. It is cosponsored by Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. as part of an effort to improve visitor services during the show. The system distributes non-contact IC tags to visitors. Each tag has a 13-digit number that the visitor types into his phone's e-mail function in order to register. When the IC tag passes through one of the scanners located around the show, the visitor immediately receives an e-mail containing relevant show information. This new system supplements more traditional and limited visitor information services like show pamphlets, information corners and maps. As a new information tool, it will provide a significant improvement in visitor hospitality.

Children's Art Exhibit

The Children's Art Exhibit began with the 28th show (1989). This is the eighth time we have run it. Working in cooperation with the Chiba City Kindergarten Association, we ask Chiba children in their last year of kindergarten to draw pictures on a specific theme. The exhibit helps to build relations with the local community and provides an opportunity to enjoy the talents of local children. The two themes for this year are: "Going by car! A fond memory of car travel," and "I wish there was a car like this: The kind of car I've always wanted to build." We received 3,827 works from 58 kindergartens. They are located on the 2nd floor Esplanade in the North Hall of the International Exhibition Hall. (The 35th show had 3,287 works from 53 kindergartens.

Tomica Corner

There will be a "Kid's Patio" in the esplanade on the second floor of the North Hall with the collaboration of Tomy Company, Ltd. In this patio, there will also be "Tomica Corner", where visitors can purchase the 37th Tokyo Motor Show special version mini-car.

Publication of Tokyo Motor Show News

With the co-sponsorship of Fuji Xerox Co., Ltd. and Fuji Xerox Office Supply Co., Ltd., “The 37th Tokyo Motor Show News,” a newsletter full of venue information, will be issued in Japanese and English daily throughout the Show. This will be distributed to the Press Center and partially to Show visitors. In the past, this was printed on both sides of an A4 sheet, but this year it will be 4 pages on a folded A3 sheet for easier reading. This newsletter will also be available on the official Tokyo Motor Show website in PDF and DocuWorks format.

Kids Corner

Like the last show, this show has a "Kids Corner" on the 2nd floor of the North Hall (Esplanade). The corner combines the "Tomica Corner" miniature car exhibit that will delight adults as well as children (sponsored by Tomy Company), the Children's Art Exhibit featuring works from kindergarten children in Chiba City, and the "Baby and Infant Service Center" with facilities for nursing and diaper changing.

JAMA PR corner

The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association will have a PR corner on the second floor of the Center Mall, featuring both panel displays and publicity pamphlets. There will also be information about the JAMA pavilion at the 2005 World Exposition, Aichi, Japan.

Blood Drive and Bone Marrow Bank Corner

The Bone Marrow Bank will also show videos and have educational activities running adjacent to the blood drive reception corner (1st floor).
