Absorb over 100 years of engineering history at Kawasaki Good Times World, a museum dedicated to the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group. Learn how the company has conquered a wide variety of environments by utilizing a plethora of technologies, from the deep sea to land, air, and space. Here you'll see examples of a vast range of vehicles and technologies, including trains, motorbikes, helicopters, and robots, with many of them open to explore internally and sit inside. You'll also have the opportunity to buy company-related items that can't be found anywhere else in the gift shop.

  • Smallish museum, but very cool exhibits. Didn't realize Kawasaki had such a broad scope of engineering projects. There are some nice model exhibits of motorcycles/trains/helicopters/etc you can get into and the little theater shows some pretty interesting videos. We got a combined pass that allows you to go up the Kobe Port Tower to the observation deck which we highly recommend. The view of the harbor is stunning from up there.
  • Could have focused more on the motorcycles though I understand the need for the company to illustrate its entire range of engineering products and prowess. Parts of the museum were a little tacky (a bike simulator that you can't counter steer in!) But glad I got to take a photo on a Ninja!
  • I ride for 30 years all over the world And just bought a Vulcan s 650 Just to find out that kawasaki is the worst company I ever had to deal with In terms of honesty Not to mention professional service As they don’t even follow the owners Manuel And mock it on the customer expense Kawasaki are liars and are motivated by greed on a level I have never seen before Me and my friend just wish to return the bikes so we can go back to Honda or Harley Big shame
  • Big peace of technology and history under one roof. Well wort to visit.
  • Located in the same building with Kobe Maritime Museum. It is a small kawasaki museum, I thought there were more exhibit
