Explored at the London Science Museum now: the world of Japanese car design set against the backdrop of Japan’s unique culture.

Japan Car is an exploration of the car as a "mobile cell", and has been conceived by two world class names from outside the world of automobiles:

- Kenya Hara, the man responsible for much of the success of Muji

- Shigeru Ban, the distinguished Japanese architect currently designing a new satellite gallery in Metz for Paris’ Pompidou Centre

The exhibition shows how Japanese car design reflects the 'soil and the spirit of Japan', shown through concept cars and special home market models.

Japan Car explores three themes while examining the future of mobility in cities. Japan, being both highly innovative and densely populated, can be seen as the driving force behind transport solutions for twenty-first century cities.
