Since its birth as Japan's first full-fledged racing course in 1962, Suzuka Circuit has been the center of Japanese motorsports.The Formula One Japanese Grand Prix, launched in 1987, while the "Coca-Cola Zero"(R) Suzuka 8hours World Endurance Road Race racks up its 30th race. Both races are well-established as big events beyond the framework of motorsports. While hosting races, Suzuka Circuit has also been engaged in promoting motorsports culture. As part of this effort, a racing school was established to nurture drivers and riders able to compete at an international level.At the amusement park Motopia, there is a diverse range of driving entertainment for young children. This is based on the corporate vision of cultivating "future fans" and promoting car culture in Japan. We have also focused on traffic safety education, along with providing an environment and services worthy of a resort, a place where you can enjoy a holiday with a quality hotel and restaurants. We have proactively developed innovative leisure facilities and services in step with the times. At the root of all these activities lie our spirit of "hospitality" and the "mobility resort" concept. Suzuka Circuit offers a racing arena, along with other motorsports and entertainment. From children to adults, there is something here to excite the hearts of people from all over the world.

I visited Suzuka Circuit purely for the theme park located next door, with some friends in September 2015. It's a nice theme park, it has a world's first rollercoaster, where, the louder you scream, the faster it goes. It was good fun, as was Rocky Coaster. This was pretty much all we rode. The park seemed nice, and had a... More

We visited F1 this year. The complex is really good, almost all corners are accessible quite easy. Lots of free places to see the track. Do not miss 130R corner, one of the greatest corners of F1 season. Great for kids also. The only problem we experienced is that english information was really hard to find.

I find it difficult to imagine what a visit to Suzuka & the Motopia theme park would be like if the Formula One wasn't on at the time. I took my 9 year old son to the first practice day and we had one of the best days out together that we have ever had. The great thing about day... More

We had tickets for first turn in B2, which was luckily one of the very few seats under cover on the whole circuit (pretty hot in the sun). The position as such is very good as you can see the first corner and then the next two where a lot of the action is. The other advantage is that you... More

My wife had a conference in Kyoto so my son and I went to the F1. About 1 1/2 hours from Kyoto, however Nagoya is closer. About 60 mins from Nagoya. From Nagoya you jump on a local train to Suzuka Circuit Ino Station. Our JR pass did not cover the last few km's, so we had to pay a... More

We had to book our hotel in Nagoya which added 120 minutes to our travel time each day. We were not really sure how we would be able to get back and forth as no information is published in English and there is no way to reserve train tickets from the U.S. if you have a JR Pass. We had... More

The track was very fun, especially the West section which includes sections G L M N O (if I'm not mistaken) and if you buy tickets to pick up, you have access to all of those sections. I recommend N on a nice day (for a great view of the acceleration point of the spoon corner) or G, the crossover,... More

France has Le Mans, the US has Indy, and Japan has Suzuka, the town where motorsports legends are made. Whether for Formula 1, Japan's Super GT - with Suzuka as the season's longest race - or other tests of speed and endurance, this is a pilgrimage for enthusiasts and first-timers alike. Surrounded by an amusement park and stocked with food... More
