Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto
First annual showing is concluded

We have been fortunate to receive much praise from our overseas visitors from the beginning of the Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto in December, 2016. During the Award 2016 event held on December 6th we were pleased to receive kind words from our guests such as “Of all of the shows that I have attended this was by far the most stimulating” and “I truly look forward to the next time”.

We believe the key to the success of this event has been our careful blending of the best elements of Eastern and Western cultural excellence. It was a first to have such storied vintage automobiles come together against the back drop of the cultural heritage site at the Nijo Castle in Kyoto. This event allowed our guests to experience a truly Japanese experience. There is no other event anywhere in the world which offers the same mixture as was found during the Concorso d’Eleganza Kyoto.

We look forward to adding to the success of this event in the future. Our goal is to bring the event into the elevated ranks of other, famous shows like the Villa d’Este on Italy’s Lake Cuomo and the Concorso d’Elegance held at the Pebble Beach golf resort in the United States.

We will hold the show again in 2018, during the fabled cherry blossom season in Kyoto. The world class collection of vintage automobiles underneath the glory of cherry blossoms in full bloom is not a sight to be missed. We look forward to your joining with us for the next event.
