Hamamatsu Air Park, Hamamatsu

See a large collection of aircraft at Hamamatsu Air Park, an aviation museum located next to an operational air base. Learn the history of the Japan Air Self Defence Force, and the evolution of the planes used. Some of the vehicles sit outside in the open, but it's in the main hangar that you really get a sense of the scale and variety of the planes. Climb aboard a fighter jet to see the inner workings of the cockpit, and make sure to have your photo taken wearing pilot overalls and a helmet. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Hamamatsu trip simple and quick.

  • The air park is free. It is amazing with kids, but also good fun as an adult. Lots of interesting things to see: There is a variety of fighter jets, search and rescue and training plains exhibited. Yo...  more »
  • Just I fighter aircraft of the type not seen a special exhibition and the me engine, was a valuable experience. Also not well land in landing simulator, excited, interesting. Overall in many attractions can be enjoyed. Though it's free, self defense! It is.

  • Had no interest in army and stuff but enjoyed activities there especially with the kids. No charge for entry or parking. Free pilot jump suit rental was the best part.
  • Great museum for the Japan Air Self Defence Forces. Main exhibits are free, they have special events throughout the year, and they are super great for kids. They have some planes with open cockpits and what seem like retired JASDF personnel to help you or your kids sit in them and will answer any questions you have. You can even fiddle with the controls and flick switches, etc. The only downside is that basically no info is available in English (or any language other than Japanese), which is always my complaint about museums in Japan. I did see a sign about an audio guide, but I never figured out where to get it. Also, getting to it is a bit of a pain if you don't have a car, but don't let that stop you!
  • A superb well presented aircraft museum with lots to see and do and for all ages . Free entry too !
  • It's good to bring your kids here. Learn about air defence and jet fighter😬😀
  • Awesome, cool museum for JSDF/aircraft fans! And the main displays are free! You can also wear a flight suit and sit in some of the cockpits. Worth the trip if you're interested in this sort of thing. Unfortunately, only the specifications are listed in English. Descriptions are actually rather limited in Japanese, too. They could've discussed a lot more regarding each craft's usage, history, and other information.
