What is Tokyo Motor Show?

Tokyo Motor Show, or TMS, is a bi-annual fair in which automobile manufacturers and suppliers demonstrate their advance technologies and designs. Visitors can experience those technologies on site and feel where the automobile industries are heading.

Station: Tokyo Big Sight Station (U11) - Yurikamome Line

Yurikamome Line starts at Shimbashi St. (U01) or Shiodome St. (U02) and ends at Toyosu St. (U16). It runs every 4 to 5 minutes around Tokyo waterfront area.

Rinkai Line is also available for the venues. However, personally I recommend Yurikamome Line because it is more simple stand alone line. No need to check the direction or non-stop stations.

Where to Dine

During the event, a gourmet event will also be held. No English website available but you can see on the link below for what can be eaten. Some famous bloggers chose their favorite restaurants and those restaurants will provide those selected foods at Tokyo Big Sight.

Also, there are several restaurants in Venus Fort near Aomi Station. Venus Fort is a mall for shopping and entertainment. You can find it easily around the Aomi Station.
