... grass mats and sliding paper doors. The room's a bit of a shock, the only furniture's a low table and a TV. You have to make your futon bed yourself on the floor with the mattresses and sheets provided in the wardrobe.

... but there's a lot more than Toyotas in there. I really enjoyed it. My knowledge of American classic cars is far more vast than Japanese cars. There were brands that I've never heard of. It was very educational and it had some of my favourites too. I had lunch at the restaurant. I never thought before, I'd be having loco moco (a Hawaiian dish) at the Toyota Automobile Museum.

... 40 men to pull it. These days it has become impossible to find 40 men of the same height with sufficient strength to pull it, and it has been permanently retired to the Exhibition Hall. Other floats are still in use, but having wheels may require only 12 to 20 men to pull them.
