Superb collection with excellent range of early Japanese cars
Mar 2019 • Friends
We planned our route around Japan so that we could visit this museum. It did not disappoint. Nicely set out in a stylish older building on three floors. British phone boxes and a London taxi were among a number of British exhibits. However we were pleased to see such a wide range of Japanese cars on show after visiting the Toyota museum where exhibits were worldwide.
Lighting was a bit poor in places as they have squeezed so many cars in but no complaints overall and well worth seeking out if you are a petrol head.

Visited during the heatwave

Interesting experience and lots to see but very hot inside
The car fanatic enjoyed the visit

We took a taxi to get there from our Ryokan about 2km away.
Disappointing that when it came to leaving around 4.30pm on a week day no taxi could be called and we had to walk back to the Ryokan
Not a great experience when the temps were in the high 30’s

A wonderful collection of cars from Japan, Europe, USA and Australia.

I have seen quite a few Automotive Museums in several countries and travel with groups of committed enthusiasts and our unanimous opinion was that this Museum is a must see.
The collection is vast, displaying everything from everyday cars to super cars, with some wonderful examples of rather rare cars, this is the largest collection of JDM cars I have ever seen and was astounded by the number of and the history of the Japanese makers on display at the Motorcar Museum of Japan.

Significant Collection of Japanese and International Cars
Oct 2016 • Couples
On arrival at the Museum the building is most impressive. So is the collection of vehicles. You are greeted on the forecourt by an old Rolls Royce, a London black cab, a Lincoln Continental and a Mercedes military off road style SUV. The focus is naturally on Japanese cars and I was delighted to see so many that I remembered from my childhood as well as many others which begun the Japanese car industry and those which were not exported and I had not seen before. In addition there were many other American, British and European cars. There were also a great many small and micro cars which you don't usually see in other motor museums. Some notable absences were the Mercedes SL Pagoda and Alfa Romeo (except for 'The Graduate' Spider). Allow plenty of time because there are three floors of jam packed cars to take in. And therein lies a problem. The cars are so tightly crammed together you can't get an all-round look at them - a bit frustrating. Having said that it was a worthwhile morning and one of the better car museums I have visited.

Amazing collection

Amazing huge collection of classic and collectible cars. Three floors full of cars has my cell phone full of pictures. My only complaint is that there are actually too many cars in the space and you can't get between the cars to see everything about them. 1000 yen admission fee is definitely worth it.

I wasn't expecting much- or anything- but I certainly didn't expect this many cars. It was very interesting to see the different cars throughout the years.

Time well spent and nice pit stop
Nov 2015 • Couples
Makes a great pit stop from Kanazawa to Nagoya. Museum is catered to both Motörhead and non-car lovers. Nice building and great collection of cars, be prepared to spend half a day to thoroughly enjoy the full collection of cars and some historic motorcycles. A pity I only had 2 hours.

had a little time before my flight and went to the museum, it turned out a lot larger with more interesting cars than i expected. Even the bathroom with urinals from around the world was interesting.

There is enough to interest even those of us (at the risk of being non-PC that is mostly the female population!) who are not car nuts. This is a beautiful building and a fabulous array of the world's cars over the past 100 years. Some makers cars were grouped so that you could see the evolution of the models.
The toilets are worth a visit too! Nice cafe where we had lunch.

Great fun for the whole family
Great selection of cars from around the world as well as some historic Japanese vehicles. An affordable and good sized museum, this can take a couple of hours or fill half a day.

As with many museums in Japan, there is a stamp collection game for the kids.
