Yokohama Factory Tours for Visitors

Yokohama has nurtured various industries which have supported the modern Japanese economy. Many diff erent factories are located in Yokohama City, some of which off er tours free of charge. It is a great opportunity for visitors to see how products in daily use are made.

 Kirin Yokohama Beer Village

In 1870, Japan’s fi rst beer brewery was established in the Yamate District in Yokohama by American businessman William Copeland, known as a pioneer in Japan’s beer industry.

Kirin Yokohama Beer Village has a 200,000-square meter facility and off ers visitors free factory tours where you can learn fi rsthand all the brewing processes; brewing, fermentation, storage, filtration, and bottling. (Reservations are required. On Saturdays, Sundays and national
holidays, videos are shown because the production lines are not running.) After seeing the huge vat for brewing beer and watching high speed packaging, it is time to taste freshly brewed beer. There are restaurants and pubs in the brewery where you can enjoy their original beer exclusively served there.

Access: 10 minutes walk from Keikyu Namamugi Station, or 20 minutes walk from JR Shin-Koyasu Station

 Nissan Yokohama Plant

Yokohama is where Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. was founded. Vsitors can watch the Nissan engine production line in the factory but advance reservations are required. Th e tour guide speaks Japanese only, so you might want to have an interpreter. You can see the amazing and highly accurate industrial robots assembling, processing, and transporting car parts.

The former headquarters building, Guest Hall, is open to the public. Reservations are not required. On the first floor is the Engine Museum, an exhibit of Nissan’s 28 kinds of engines from the past. You can also learn about the mechanisms of automotive engines. On the second floor, you will find miniature cars as well as the history of the Yokohama Plant. The interior is still the original.

Access: 17 minutes walk from JR/Keikyu Shin-Koyasu Station
