GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA
A life-size "moving Gundam" 18 meters high!
The Gundam is a mobile suit that appears in the popular animation "Mobile Suit Gundam," which is loved around the world.
Visitors can enjoy an up-close display of a life-size "moving Gundam" measuring 18 meters in height at the "GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA" that has just opened at the Yamashita Wharf.
The facility is divided into two areas: the "GUNDAM-DOCK" deck, which houses the Gundam, and the "GUNDAM-LAB," which contains an exhibition facility where visitors can learn about the mechanism of the "moving Gundam".
The Gundam is "moved" twice an hour, alternating between a 9-minute startup test scene and a 6-minute storage scene.
The "GUNDAM-DOCK" is also equipped with the "GUNDAM-DOCK TOWER," a special viewing deck where visitors can enjoy the head and body of the Gundam from a height of 15 to 18 meters in front of them.
Although an additional fee is required, the view from the tower is exciting even for non-fans.
The tower is limited to a certain number of people and viewing times are designated, so advance purchase of tickets on the website is recommended.
The facility also has an official store "THE GUNDAM BASE YOKOHAMA Satellite" that sells official pamphlets and original Gunpla (Gundam plastic model), and a cafe "GUNDAM Café YOKOHAMA Satellite".
GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA" will be open until March 31, 2023 (Friday), so be sure not to miss this opportunity to visit.
A life-size Gundam, 18 meters high, moves twice an hour.
