Great tour, really informative. My husband and I are both engineers so really loved seeing the assembly line, and how the cars come together, that said, I don't think you need to have a mechanical inclination to enjoy this. It is really very fascinating & well worth the trip. You do need to book in advance (online) though, so don't... More

if you're at Hiroshima longer than 3 days, you should consider going here. you can see a local company that support the city's economy from before Hiroshima bombing until now. you need to book first for Mazda Museum visit (it's free!), after that you need to go to the Mazda HQ (near Mukainada Station) and then just ask the staff....

My husband is a motor mechanic and auto teacher. I have NO interest in cars, nor do our two daughters aged 11&13 but this was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan. I still can't believe that the tours of this factory are free!! It was really easy to find by following the instructions on their webpage. We... More

We booked an English speaking tour of the Mazda factory with ease and when we arrived to check in, the greeting area already gave the impression we were in for a treat. The Mazda factory is huge employing over 21 thousand people in Hiroshima. Our guide took us through Mazda's history and some of the cars and motorbikes it has... More

This is something you book ahead online - its easy to do. When you book online they give you directions from Hiroshima Station. It takes about 45 minutes. There is a short walk to the factory. You enter into a large showroom where there are several cars, a photo machine where you can get a free photo by one of... More

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
