The 46th Tokyo Motor Show, slated to kick off on Oct. 24 at Tokyo Big Sight and other areas in Tokyo's Odaiba district, is set to showcase the latest automotive trends but will also depart from previous editions of the motor show.

This year's motor show, under the theme of "Open Future," places an increased focus on the future of our society and its use of rapidly evolving technology in addition to revealing the newest in automotive trends.

"The word 'open' means the event will not be limited to showcasing the auto industry. By being open to other industries and collaborating with them, we are trying to demonstrate the mobility-centered society of the future," said Jun Nagata, chairman of the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association's Tokyo Motor Show Committee.
