This facility introduces the technology of Nissan Motors with a focus on engines. There are displays of real engines in addition to explanations of the mechanisms.
Nissan Engine Museum and Guest Hall
The Guest Hall was originally built in 1934, a year after Nissan Motors was founded. Then, it was the 1st building of the main office. After renovation, in 2002, the building was designated as a heritage building by Yokohama City. The building has also been designated as a heritage of industrial modernization in 2007 by the Ministry of Trade, Economics, and Industry. On display in the museum are new engines, miniature cars, and explanations on the mechanism in addition to industrial robots used in the factories. The same robots perform a drawing demonstration in the museum as well. The Nissan Engine Museum displays 28 units of engines since their first Type 7 engine produced in 1935.
Nissan Motor Yokohama Factory Tour
From the “Engine Assembly Line” within the Yokohama Factory, the Factory Tour shows you the newest “MR type engine” (in-line 4 cylinder, 1800 cc/2000 cc). This engine was co-developed according to a development program with Renault. It features Nissan’s most up-to-date environmental technology. New production technologies are also on display. An “Experience Section” is placed within the tour course. At this section, you can feel the effort that goes into production on the engine assembly line through observing the simplified mechanisms on display. Tour participants can actively engage in a learning experience at this section. (*Reservation necessary)
