If you are going to Toyota from Tokyo, you can either take the Shinkansen to Toyohashi, change to a private train and arrive at Toyota, or rent a car in Toyohashi as it is more convenient to have a car.
In the case of Kariya, take the Nozomi train to Nagoya and take the local train to Kariya in less than 30 minutes.
In Aichi Prefecture, there is the Central Japan International Airport (Centrair), which has many international flights.
For domestic flights, there are flights from Kyushu (including Okinawa), Shikoku, and Sapporo, Hakodate, Sendai, and Akita in the north.
However, it takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to 2 hours by train from Centrair to Toyota, which is a bit far.
While there are a few hotels in Toyota, it is not an area with that many accommodations.
If you are in Kariya, you will have a wider choice of hotels if you use Nagoya as a base.
Toyota is the city of Toyota, so the Toyota Museum and other Toyota-related facilities are tourist attractions.
