"Moving Gundam" startup experiment Display period extended until March 31, 2023!!

Project Concept Project Concept

Since the opening of the port, Yokohama has been a window for exchanges between Japan and overseas, and with its historic buildings and beautiful scenery, has developed a fascinating cityscape and rich culture. Yamashita Pier in Yokohama, the international port city, will see a fusion between Gundam, a character that also attracts a lot of attention from overseas, and Japanese manufacturing with its excellent technological capabilities.

It's the Mobile Suit Gundam that appeared in the eponymous animation "Mobile Suit Gundam".

It has been said that the machine of Gundam was lost after surviving the battle between Earth people and spacenoids.

However, a huge quantity of parts that seem to be from the Gundam type mobile suits have been discovered in the vicinity of Yamashita Pier in Yokohama. Engineers from various fields have gathered at "GUNDAM FACTORY YOKOHAMA" for research, analysis, and reconstruction to elucidate these parts.

It was as if a new Gundam was being developed.

Finally, the frame is completed and the startup experiment begins!

The magnificent world view held in the story of "Gundam" spurs, inspires, and moves the imagination and passion of many people involved in the project.

Dreams become reality, and that reality creates new dreams...

Please have the live experience of various motions by Gundam, including poses reminiscent of famous scenes!
