Lexus Takumi master craftsmen – or simply ‘Takumi’ – have a precious blend of skill and spirit. They're highly trained, with meticulous attention to detail. And they possess a true belief in excellence, stopping at nothing to achieve it. Each focuses on a particular element of the car-making process. It becomes their passion and obsession. Among the 7,700 workers at the Miyata Lexus Plant in Kyushi, there are just 19 Takumi. There is no higher honour within our engineering ranks.
