I learned about this museum while I was planning my trip to Hiroshima. It is not far from the city and you can reach it by train departing from Hiroshima station. Please be aware that you have to send an e-mail a day before in advanced to separate a spot in their English-guided tour, since it is only given at... More

This is a reservations-only tour of the main Mazda manufacturing and assembly complex just east of downtown Hiroshima, 2 stops from Hiroshima station to Mukainada then a short walk to the Mazda headquarters building. English tours start at 10 am and last 90 minutes. The lobby in main office has a display of some current Japanese spec Mazda cars and... More

A definite must see for avid car enthusiasts, but as interesting for someone lest enthusiast about cars. You get to see the conveyor belt where they manufacture the cars, it is very interesting to se the assemble real cars. Rotary engine displays and technical information can be skipped. The guide we had was very good and understood that we did... More

We booked online about 3 weeks in advance for the tour in English which was at 10am. It is easy to get to by train and a short walk and there are directions on the web site and they also email you directions. It is signposted at the station too, you can't go wrong. The whole complex is about 7km... More

We booked in advance, caught the train and walked a few hundred metres to the factory. We were taken on a tour of this amazingly enormous factory which is just difficult to describe. To put it into some context, they house some staff on site and they've built a Mazda hospital opposite the factory. The tour takes you through the... More

We were in Hiroshima for just one night but aside from the floating temples and the Peace Park we also visited the Mazda Car Factory. First of all, the logistics. It's free to visit but I'd definitely advise that you make an advance reservation. There's only one English tour each day (ours was 10am) and there were quite a few... More

A great alternative on your way around Hiroshima's Memorial sites filled with sombre atmosphere and sad events from the past... Mazda Factory (situated near JR Mukainada Station) runs English speaking tours every morning, meaning you can join in free of charge as long as you make an online reservation prior to the date. Informative guides show you around the compound... More

Having no interest in cars, I had a blast! A guided tour through the mazda museum saw many photos taken. No photos are allowed in the actual factory where we lingered, enthralled. The time precision was phenomenal and the importance of robotics unquestioned. My highlight was the cars of the future. Many car enthusiasts on the tour were totally engaged.... More
