Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

In roughly three years, all the achievements achieved by Nintendo will be exhibited in a museum, to be erected in the city of Uji, Japan. According to the gaming giant, an old factory will be transformed into a gallery, where consoles and others will be exhibited products that the company has launched throughout its history.

The “Nintendo Gallery”, as it is being called for now, does not yet have an opening date, but is expected to be completed in March 2024.

In addition to working as a tourist attraction, the space also promises to provide experiences and exhibitions. However, Nintendo lovers in Portugal and the rest of the world will have to travel to Japan, to the city of Uji, to visit the museum and enjoy the new offer of this game company.

Japan Nintendo will get a museum

Uji is a city located on the outskirts of Kyoto, which used to receive many tourists before the pandemic, and access to the site where the Nintendo museum will be located is relatively simple, using rail transport, so fans of Nintendo products will be able to travel to the museum when they travel again in the next few years.

It is already public knowledge that Nintendo has been discussing the possibility of building a museum to share with the public its “history and philosophy of product development”. The company finally decided to remodel the Uji Ogura factory and its surrounding land to fulfill that purpose, after also taking into account the Uji city plan for the construction of the area near Oguro Station.

Nintendo built the Uji Ogura factory in 1969 and produced Hanafuda playing cards and cards there. The space also served as a customer service center for product repairs. In November 2016, Nintendo transferred these operations to its newest factory in town.

The Japanese giant of electronic games and consoles, based in Kyoto, took its first steps in September 1889 at the hands of the artisan Fusajiro Yamauchi. Initially, it took over as a maker of traditional Japanese playing cards, and for more than half a century it remained that way. From the 1960s onwards, she began to venture into new businesses, and in 1977, the company entered the electronic games market.
