Ride the Kawasaki simulators and learn about Japan's 20th century industry

  • Sightseeing

Kawasaki Good Times World is a museum which shows the history of the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group. The Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group was founded in Kobe in 1896. Although they started as a ship builder, the business stretches to various areas.
When you walk into the entrance, you will see the big panel which explains the history of the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group.

You will be surprised how big a role the Kawasaki played in the modern era of Japan. Today, the Kawasaki is mainly known for their motorcycles such as Ninja H2R.

The highlight of the museum is that you are not only looking at the major Kawasaki products but also “experience” them. Have fun using the flight simulator or train simulator ! And don’t forget to take pictures of yourself riding a jet ski or motorcycles!

There is Kobe Maritime Museum in the same building, which shows the history of the port of Kobe and ship models. You can purchase a ticket of the Kawasaki Good Times World (it includes the ticket of Kobe Maritime Museum) for ¥600 (JPY) per adult, and ¥250 (JPY) per child.
