Message from the opening of the Shikoku Automobile Museum:
The Shikoku Automobile Museum was opened in the 21st century center as early as possible in response to the request of Daifuto Town under the aim of regional revitalization in 1990 and closed for use change of the building in 1996. Since the Nishiyama Group has 15 automobile-related companies in Shikoku. We thought that setting up a place to let you know the cultural aspects of the car is also an important responsibility. And since then we have been looking for new places It depends.
We are confident that synergistic effects can be expected from each other because the access is convenient. And the tourism development is also ambitious as for the Noichicho which we decided to open this time. I hope that Shikoku Automobile Museum will be useful as one of tourism resources in Kochi Prefecture.
