| Nissan Engine Museum and Guest Hall
The Guest Hall was originally built in 1934, a year after Nissan Motors was founded. Then, it was the 1st building of the main office. After renovation, in 2002, the building was designated as a heritage building by Yokohama City. The building has also been designated as a heritage of industrial modernization in 2007 by the Ministry of Trade, Economics, and Industry. On display in the museum are new engines, miniature cars, and explanations on the mechanism in addition to industrial robots used in the factories. The same robots perform a drawing demonstration in the museum as well. The Nissan Engine Museum displays 28 units of engines since their first Type 7 engine produced in 1935.
