Hamamatsu Station 

[Air Park (Japan Air Self-Defense Force Hamamatsu Air Base Public Information Center)]

Let's take off! The facility includes activity corners where you can experience what it's like to be a pilot

Air Park is a facility that introduces the JASDF's missions and activities through exhibits on aircrafts and pilots' equipment. The main highlight is an exhibition hanger where you can see successive generations of Blue Impulses and a real Zero Fighter. You can enter the cockpit of some aircrafts and take photos inside! In the exhibition hall, you can experience theme park levels of fun as you learn about the JASDF's activities, experience a simplified simulator, and watch videos at the theater. The popular museum shop offers an assortment of souvenir sweets and toys that attract both children and adults.
