Toyota Motors Philippines Boss Atsuhiro Okamoto Used Manila’s Public Transport

by | Posted on: February 28th, 2020 | No Comments | Viral Stories

Toyota Philippines Motors president Atsuhiro Okamoto was seen riding several public types of transport in Manila.

His experience was captured and posted on TMP President’s Office / Hiro Okamoto Facebook page.


During my first week in the Philippines, I decided to do “Genchi Genbutsu,” or to “Go and See” the daily struggles of Filipino commuters. I rode a bus, took a round trip of the MRT, rode the jeepney, queued for a long time to ride the UV Express, and lastly, took a tricycle ride to Tondo! For me, it’s a good learning experience. I realize that unlike Japan or Singapore, the Philippines’ current mass transport system is not enough to accommodate the huge number of daily commuters. I would like Toyota to take part in this big challenge to upgrade the quality of life for many Filipinos.
