Bike no Furusato (Hometown of the Motorcycle: ) Hamamatsu

Fun motorcycle event held in Hamamatsu; the place where HONDA, SUZUKI, YAMAHA were established.

The first motorcycle, not an imitation, but an original design, was made by HONDA in Japan. During peak production, there were over 125 motorcycle makers in Japan and about 40 of them had head offices here in Hamamatsu. During that motorcycle renaissance, each company competed to improve and innovate their motorcycles, and many fine craftsmen and engineers were born.
Those technologies have been passed down, and motorcycle makers and many parts manufacturers still produce refined items here in Hamamatsu.
Hamamatsu has long supported and contributed to motorcycle culture; it really is the hometown of the motorcycle.
