Photographer's Note

Back from 20c. Korea.
Been to Toyota's birthplace yesterday.

In Japanese, "toyo" is "wealth" or "wealthy".
"Ta" means "rice paddy".
So, "Toyota" means "Wealthy paddy".

There is the "Sakichi Toyota Memorial House" in Kosai, 30 minutes from shinkansen Hamamatsu Stn.
There of course is a patch of rice paddy in front of Founder Toyota's birthplace.

See Honda, Yamaha and Suzuki too.
