Hiroshima is the home of Mazda (founded in 1920) and you don't need to be a Mazda owner to appreciate the company's history and relationship to the city. Free daily tours of the museum are conducted Monday to Friday, with separate tours for English and Japanese speaking visitors. The tours also include an overview of part of the assembly line...

A comprehensive look on the Mazda Motor industry in Japan. Got a good view on the assembly line. Surprise to see that FIAT was also made in Japan. Museum need to be booked in advance, but it's free!

Just remember to book in advance, sometimes English tours are full. Very informative and enjoyable tour, museum is not the largest (e.g. compared those of German big automakers) but technical department and most of all, walk over section of assembly line are really good - most companies don't let you visit production halls at all. Souvenir shop is more for... More

...of the great Mazda factory spreading over a huge part of Hiroshima. The tour starts with the show room where you see the different models produced on the plant, then a 10 minute video explaining the history of Mazda. You are then taken to the museum and from there a short walk to the assembly line where people and robots... More

This is a well run and interesting tour. It's free and you get a small gift at the end. I came across this by chance and managed to make an online booking (all tours have to be booked online in advance). The tour covers history, engines, technology, design, the future and, for me the best part, watching the cars actually... More

Booking online was easy, the confirmation contained all the information needed to find the museum which with a JR pass was very easy. I am not an enthusiast, but I enjoyed the experience. The factory itself was probably the most interesting for me but all 4 members of our family enjoyed the experience and cited different aspects of the tour... More

Sounds a bit boring but really interesting. Tour is free and only 2 stops from Hiroshima station on a JR line so free train if you have a JR pass. Tour takes 1.5 hours and starts with a look at their latest cars then a bit on the history of Mazda. Best part is a look at the assembly line... More

Late xmas gift, to tour the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima. Co-Creator of Midwest Mazda Club mainly based out of Louisville, KY. Loved the experience and knowledge gained from this visit. Obviously wanted more out of it and to ask many more questions but it was fairly good. For a free tour (have to book months in advance), it was worth... More

When we arranged to come to visit Hiroshima and found out the Mazda car factory was here it became a must do visit for me. The tour is free but must be pre- booked up to a year in advance it starts at 1000 and is in English. You go on a bus and are taken round the museum where... More
