Hiroshima Import Automobile Show

Every year, for two days near the end of January, the “Green Arena” prefectural sports hall is filled with Jaguars, Land Rovers, BMWs, Mercedes and more.

If you are into cars it’s fun to join all the motoring geeks drooling over the high end vehicles and families looking for their next ride – you can get in behind the wheel of many of the cars. There are also usually a few classic cars from the collection of Kagoshima collector Shojiro Hani on display – often including the batmobile from Tim Burton’s 1989 film. The corridor circling the outside of the hall is also filled with 30 or so motorbikes.

Check out the photos from the 2015 show below and keep an eye on this event post for details of future shows.

    It was great to see the Ford Ecosport. Designed and engineered in Brazil, assembled in India and now on sale in Japan. Very proud to have been in all three organisations.
