Included in the entry ticket to the very interesting Kobe Maritime Museum, this exhibition on the history and operations of the Kawasaki organisation is educational, inspiring and fun. Kids of all ages will enjoy the awesome motorcycle display, and especially the opportunity to sit and pose on a couple of them. There are also fun arcade-type games to try out... More

This is a great place to take the family in any weather, but it is indoors so you miss out on the sun if the day is good. Inside there are many things for the kids to do and explore and get 'hands on' with some of the amazing technology and transport that Kawasaki has made.

This is in the same building (same ticket) as the Kobe Maritime Museum. This is focused on the history of Kawasaki and is really promotional for the brand. There were lots of kids having fun at the exhibits. The arc of history for Kawasaki was well delineated and it looks like a great company going forward. The museum was loud... More

Definitely a good place to kill your time with children and teenagers; a history on the development maritime adventure into the modern technology city.

Kobe is a great place to live, but it is not a big tourism city for foreigners. When we lived in a Kobe suburb, we loved taking our visiting grandchildren to the Kawasaki Good Times World. It's free admission. One can drive a train. One can climb in and out of train cars, aircraft, and onto stationary motorcycles. Cheap thrills

So much to see and do!! A real hands on experience for the whole family. I'm not into vehicles in particular myself, but even I had fun. The kids loved watching the documentary movies and trying all the different vehicle. They especially loved the jetski simulator and the train driving simulator. We were there on a Sunny Sunday and it... More

Nice place to learn the developments of Kawasaki company. My favourites are the history of motorbike section and the model of the old Shinkansen. There are some simulators which you can enjoy driving a train and so on but may have to wait for an hour during the peak time. It is inside the maritime museum so both places can... More
