Otaku Garage Japan this week went to the Nismo Omori Factory. The Nismo Omori Factory is the Nismo Global Headquarters. The Omori Factory is where Nismo makes all of their parts, builds all of their engines, cars & accessories. Their facility is also equipped with all the equipment needed to test & tune the cars they build & work on. If you have ever bought a Nismo part for your car it’s more then likely it came from here.
The Nismo Omori Factory wasn’t originally in Yokohama. It was in Tokyo & only in the last few years it was moved to Yokohama to be closer to the Nissan Global Headquarters. They are a 10 minute drive from each other & if you are ever going to visit Japan I recommend you plan to do both in one day as they are so close to each other. We wrote a blog on our visit to the Nissan Global Headquarters check it out when you’re done reading this one.
Getting to the Nismo Omori Factory by public transport from Tokyo is pretty easy. But the last part of the trip is a bit difficult if you can’t read the language. So I would recommend once you get to the closest station which is Namamugi you just walk out to the street & grab a taxi. The whole trip will involve 3 – 4 trains & 1 bus depending on where in Tokyo you are coming from.
When you get to the Nismo Omori Factory, walk into the carpark until you see a red corridor with the Nismo & then from there walk right in. Well thats if you can get past the cars in the carpark. Most of the time they are full of Nismo edition cars like the 350Z, 370Z etc. Once you get inside the place is just amazing. So many things that you wish you could justify buying but you just can’t unless you win the lottery haha. But yes you can buy all the Nismo goodies here as well, they aren’t just on show.
