THE TAJIMA-ISM BUSINESS

Tajima Motor Corporation is the dream company envisioned and founded by race driver “Monster Tajima”.

Starting out as a small motorsports garage shop, we have always kept the automotive field as prime focus of business and expanded to grow in other industry fields to this day.

Nobuhiro Tajima is an absolute automobile aficionado. He would create new innovative products based on his ideas and also explore the world to find worthy products which he could genuinely recommend and offer them toward like-minded car enthusiasts.

His philosophy is, “Take the opportunity to do something worthy for someone. Make someone smile.”

Tajima’s approach toward Electric Vehicles for sustainable earth environment, to save lives and protect what is valuable to people from disasters, and the trading business to find fantastic products from around the world; all revolve around his beliefs “to enrich life itself and enhance the joys of living”.
