On Tuesday, June 12, Lexus of Richmond held our event “A Night In Tokyo” at Independence Golf Club. A Night In Tokyo was a celebration of all things Lexus. The evening was inspired by the Lexus and Japanese craftsmanship, perfection, and amazing experiences.
Throughout the night, we had several vehicles on the lawn at Independence. There were several LS 500’s as well as a RX 350 and a ES 350. We were even lucky enough to have a structural blue LC 500. There were only 300 structural blue LCs put into production, so we were honored to have one at Lexus of Richmond and our event.
