How to get there

The Honda Collection Hall is located in central Japan, about 150km north of Tokyo. Surrounded by a beautiful natural environment, it is set on the grounds of the Twin Ring Motegi race track.

It takes a bit of an effort to reach the museum as there are no direct connections from Tokyo:

  • The easiest and fastest way to get there is by (rental) car. Allow some two and a half hours to reach Twin Ring Motegi from Tokyo. Keep in mind that Japan has left-hand driving and highway tolls.
  • To reach the museum by public transport you can take the bullet train from Tokyo to Utsunomiya Station (about 1 hour) then a taxi or bus (about 1.5 hours) to Twin Ring Motegi. The bus to the museum is operating on certain days only, so needs some planning in advance.

For more information please have a look at the official Honda Collection Hall website (english).

      Hello!

      you probably want to ask your car rental company 🙂

      as far as I know, most rental companies will not cover insurance on race tracks, but please let us know if you found one which does

      Dear Pauline

      you don´t need to take the Shinkansen, regular trains will also go from Tokyo to Utsunomiya Station but it will take longer of course.
      Information on the Bus can be found here: http://www.twinring.jp/access_m/by_train/index.html (only in japanese but you can use google chrome browser to translate it).
      It is about 35km from from Utsunomiya Station to the Honda Collection Hall, but as you can split the bill between 7 people it might be an option.
      More information can be found on the official website: http://world.honda.com/collection-hall/access/index.html (it also provides a telephone number that you can call for further questions)

      best regards
