Where was Subaru founded?

I love learning about the history of automakers since it tells the story of the brand. I’m also interested in buying a Subaru. Would you be able to tell me when and where Subaru was founded?

Subaru was founded in Tokyo, Japan on July 15, 1953. Its global headquarters is located in Shibuya while the main manufacturing plant is in the city of Ota, just north of Tokyo.
Before you buy a Subaru, we have a few tips to help you find the best model for you:
  • Determine your needs, wants, and lifestyle: this will help you narrow down the type of vehicle (e.g., if you want to take the car to the track, you would look at sports car options)
  • Evaluate your monthly vehicle budget: ideally, you should only spend a maximum of 10–15% of your income on car payments
  • Compare models and brands: you may find that an equivalent model from another brand has a better value
  • Research dealerships: you’ll want to go somewhere that has the best service since you’ll be dealing with them for at least a few years
  • Take vehicles out for a test drive: a model can be perfect on paper but you may not like the driving experience
  • Negotiate the price or ask for free upgrades/accessories: this will maximize the value you are getting from your purchase
