As you are already in one of the most expensive cities in the world, why not max out on your credit card at the Toyota Megaweb Showroom. I'm told that the cost of the car is not in itself particularly expensive, such as the two-door beauty that I am pictured with. However, it seems that the running costs (parking space, petrol, maintenance) all do add up to cost a bomb.
Most Tokyo dwellers rely on the efficient JR trains, monorail or simply cycle to work (I noticed many men and women in business suits and dresses and high-heels out on their bicycles and a few on motorbikes).
What to buy: The car of the future - energy saving, electric car that is environmentally friendly, (and those that can drive you from point to point, without a driver!) - is already here in Tokyo. Check it out at the Toyota Megaweb Showroom at Palette Town, Odaiba. You can even book to do a short test drive.
What to pay: Millions of Yen
