There is a great museum with a view of the Mazda car manufacturing plant's production line in the factory. Kids loved it, but be open to hear a lot of corporate jargon and also for it be to closed on weekends. English tours are limited, so please do book a place early (they are very professional in making the reservation... More

90 minute tour, which gives a glimpse into how massive Mazda is. The best part of the tour is the automated assembly line - we couldn't take our eyes off it.. great for rainy days. Plus it's free. Reservations are required (ask your hotel to call, even on the same day)

Good history lesson on company. As a former employee must be careful what I say as the company is very sensitive to any critique. The museum is a tad light in displays, although they do recognize the role Ford had in saving the car company by applying good auto practices. Skyactiv display really doesn't give this cool suite of technologies... More

Mazda is a company with a distinct attitude and sense of innovation. The tour begins with a interesting if cheesy video on the history of the Mazda company. From there you get to see a wide range of vehicles from the early 1900s up to modern day. A particular highlight is the LeMans 24hr winning 787B, compete with battle damage.... More

We only reserved a couple of days before we went on the tour and fortunately there were still spots available. If you have a couple of days in Hiroshima I would certainly add this to your itinerary. It was really interesting, we particularly enjoyed hearing about the facility as a whole. The infrastructure required to support large scale manufacturing is... More

Easily accessible by train. Make a reservation on the Mazda website before you go. Tour and signs are in English. The Mazda Museum is not very interesting for non-Mazda fans, with a handful of old-timers and highlights of the famous but ultimately flopped Rotary engine. The tour also goes to the Assembly line, which is always an interesting sight to... More

Very interesting tour of the Mazda production plant, museum, and assembly line. Saw human and robotic workers on the assembly line, detailed exhibits on the rotary engine, historic cars and photos.

Reservations required. You can make your reservation online for either the 10am English or 1pm Japanese tour. Great tour of the assembly line.
