Excitement and anticipation were in the air at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show, and with good reason. Japanese auto makers are profitable again, after years of struggling with economic woes and natural disasters.
Since the first show here was held almost 60 years ago in 1954, Tokyo has become famous for wild and fanciful concept cars that look into a possible future with wit and an almost child-like amusement at the possible, even if it might be ultimately unattainable.
This year we didn't find as many crazy concepts, but the Japanese car industry has plenty to be happy about in 2013.
