I came to Japan for work, but I landed about a week early so I could have time to run around and visit friends and family. My buddy up near Tokyo was on my list of must-visits, so I headed up that way and we decided to check out Isuzu Plaza.

I wasn’t sure what to expect since Isuzu has long since given up producing passenger cars (with the exception of the D-Max and MU-X), but boy was I in for a treat. The interactive way they showed how they produce their trucks was just phenomenal. One of the best museum setups I’ve ever seen.

They also had several of their trucks and engines on display which was quite cool.

Along with a good collection of their historic vehicles. I wish they would have had a bit more, but what they had was proper quality.

One day I will buy a Zenki Bellel like this one.

It also helps that we spent the day driving around in this beautiful beast.
