This was so fun! There is one English tour every day at 10am, and you need reservations (we made ours months in advance, but that's not necessary.) It's a couple stops away from Hiroshima Station. The tour was about an hour and a half. We spent about an hour (roughly, I didn't notice the exact times) on the historical cars... More

Only 2 train stops outside Hiroshima and barely a few hundred metres walk from the train this is nice and easy to visit. It's also free :) As others mentioned, the English tour is at 10 and lasts 90 minutes. I wish it was longer - the time does fly...and I felt we were slightly rushed from area to area.... More

My husband and I and our two young daughters really enjoyed our trip to the Mazda factory. The museum is beautifully appointed and the tour of the factory itself was fascinating. It really gives you a greater appreciation of the precise nature of Japanese engineering. The scale of the Mazda site is mind blowing and you cannot grasp the enormity... More

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
