The globally renowned corporation, Yamaha's, museum

YAMAHA has grown to be one of the top general musical instrument makers since it was established in 1887. The company's big break was in it's making of an organ. At the time, the company's creativity went beyond just "making an instrument," and extended into other possibilities. The technology that YAMAHA cultivated throughout history is used for various businesses such as musical instruments, acoustic equipment and car interior parts.


The exhibition is split into 12 areas, and introduces Yamaha's favorite products, their innovative developments, and latest technologies. Moreover, you can "experience" how to play or operate most of the instruments or the products. You can play the piano on display in the musical instrument area, worth tens of millions of yen, and feel the difference.
