Through exciting experiences to foster the challenging
Renovated Yanmar Museum
In addition to pursuing a range of business activities to achieve A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE, Yanmar Group is engaged in fostering the next generation beyond the framework of our businesses. As a pillar of the initiatives, Yanmar Museum located in Nagahama, Shiga, was renovated in October 2019.
With a new concept, "Let's try! 'Exciting Future' Challenge!" and embracing the challenging spirit of Magokichi Yamaoka, who successfully developed the world's first small diesel engine, the museum aims to nurture the same spirit in children through exciting experiences.
Incorporating elements of physical activities such as bouldering, obstacle courses, and soccer, the challenging attractions use cutting-edge video technology and a real excavator to operate, the Challenge Area offers the opportunity to experience the world through Yanmar's concept of A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE.
On its second floor, the Biotope on the Roof, which modeled after the natural environment of Lake Biwa, allows visitors to play games using tablet devices to identify waterside creatures. The facility also provides a foot bath heated with engine exhaust heat, so that visitors can feel the coexistence with nature closer to them. In addition, the restaurant, Premium Marché Biwako opened as part of our Premium Marché food project, providing a richer food experience through seasonal dishes made with local fresh ingredients, such as rice and vegetables.
In addition to the Challenge Area, Yanmar Museum also features the Exhibition Area showing the history of Yanmar, business projects and historical engine models explained through a digital timeline and graphic, as well as the Challenge Room to hold workshops and events.
Though the museum tours and workshops that had been held regularly was temporarily suspended due to the spread of COVID-19, we are determined to contribute to local education continuously.
In August 2020, the museum hosted a lecture titled "The Challenging Spirit to create our own future" for first grade students from Nagahama Hokusei High School. Museum General Manager Noboru Yamamoto gave a talk to around 200 students about the importance of taking on challenges.
Furthermore, over 4,000 students from about 90 schools mainly from Kansai area, visited and enjoyed the tour in 2020 (as of November 30).
On the other hand, in March 2020, the museum opened a webpage, "Ouchi Challenge"* (museum from home) on its website for school kids away from school and staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic to enjoy learning at home. We participated in this initiative that was a part of the project of Hokkaido Museum's "Ouchi Museum."
