Do you like planes? The free museum has a massive collection of them that you can view free of charge. Look to your heart's content

What an Air Park. Firstly, it free! The static plane display is awesome. Visitors get to sit in the cockpits of various fighter jets and there's also a simulator for you to fly a plane. One can rent for free pilot overalls and helmet for picture shoots. From kids to adults, male and female....there's nothing one will not enjoy about this place. During our visit, at the start (right facing) of the JASDF airport runway...and from a distance, Mount Fuji was in clear view. What a special treat. Highly Recommended.

Don't be put off by other people's comments - this place can easily be reached by public bus for a fare of around 500 yen each way on bus number 51. The bus trip takes about 20 minutes, and then you just walk 50m to the first corner, turn left, walk for about 15 minutes on this street until it ends in a T intersection and then you will see the Air Park right in front of you. The entrance is about 200m to the left when you come to the T intersection. The very helpful staff at the Hammamatsu tourist info will tell you all about it if you drop in. That's located in the JR Railway station.
The park itself was a bit disappointing for me. We went first to the museum part and only then did we find the display hangar (which was much better). All the simulator rides were booked out by 10am, so really it was a long trip for not much. My husband is an aircraft nerd, and he enjoyed it. I personally thought the Shinkansen museum in Nagoya was better.

Following the reviews of the Air Park we made our way their by public transport. It was quite an effort dealing with the bus system and then trying to negotiate the walk from the bus stop to the Air Park in the absence of any signs in English. Upon arriving there we found the place closed because it always closes on the last Tuesday of the month as well as from Tuesday to Thursday in certain months of the year etc etc. If the Park is really on your agenda I would suggest that you contact them before going out in case it is the wrong time of the year.

If you go to Hamamatsu, you should visit this facility.
The facility is admission free and you can see a variety of aircraft.
There're some warplanes that you can sit on the pilot's seats.
The facility is equipped with flight simulators available for free.
You have to pick up a numbered ticket, if you want to ride the movable flight simulator.
Moreover you can borrow a military uniform for free.
They have not only adult size but also kid size.
This facility is where we can enjoy without spending money!

Great experience of all the various types of jet planes. It was not just fun for the children but also for all the adults. We were allowed to try the simulator plane and wear the uniform with no cost at all even though there was no entrance fee. Worth the stop at this Air Park.

The equivalent to an Air Force, this Civil Air Defense base has many fighter jets and radar planes coming and going. The attached museum was a pleasant surprise. There are audio headsets available in English to help explain the exhibits, as most the written captions are in Japanese. It's a well constructed, modern, spotlessly clean place and interesting. The highlight is to walk into the adjoining hangar full of various airplanes, including WWII zeros. You can even put on a pilot jumpsuit and helmet (both are optional) and jump into several of the planes to have your picture taken. The staff in this room were quite enthusiastic and made sure I knew exactly which planes had been made in America. I quite enjoyed this small museum and can recommend it.
