    Background: With smaller cars stealing the lime-light, Tokyo is following the world trend at its 6th Annual All-Japan Motor Show; opened at the International Trade Centre, October 24. Sports cars for the "fast set" are also much in evidence.

    Competing for the honour of becoming Japan's "people's car" - the most popular of the smaller models - are the long awaited Mitsubishi 500, and three others: the Sabaru 360, the Mikasa and Suzulight, all with motor-cycle type, air-cooled engines. Among British models on view is the Hillman, Minx, produced by the Rootes Group. A notable diesel-engine car is the Japanese Toyopet Crown de Luxe.

    The Mikasa sports car - with body-lines similar to those of the new British M.G. - and the plastic-bodied Datsun 100, feature prominently no the stands for speed enthusiasts.

    Motor cycles - a common sight on the roads of Japan - are also well represented.

    The Japanese Automobile Industry Promotion Association - sponsoring the show - hope this year's attendance will exceed last year's crowd of half a million. More than 300 automobile and accessory manufacturers are exhibiting.
