These are the craziest cars from the Tokyo Motor Show

For decades, the Tokyo Motor Show was the premier show in Asia.

But with the rise of China as one of the world’s largest auto markets, focus has been shifting towards shows in the Middle Kingdom. In reaction to this shift, Tokyo has turned itself into a techno-centric show with a focus of the future mobility.

In addition, the Tokyo Motor Show displays the latest offerings from Japan’s numerous manufacturers and their pint-sized “kei” cars offerings, which are indigenous to the country.

The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show wrapped up earlier this month. Now, we’re getting ready for the LA Auto Show, which pulls into the City of Angels at the end of this coming week. But let’s have a look back at the zany exposition that Tokyo has become.
