The Gundam Factory Yokohama sits on the water at Yokohama’s Yamashita Pier. For the Gundam 40th Anniversary, they created this facility with an 18 meter 1-to-1 life-size mobile Gundam, the RX-78F00. The biggest Gundam in the world!
The original creator and director of Gundam, Yoshiyuki Tomino was also very much involved in the creation of the site. Unfortunately, it’s only open until March of 2022. The Gundam Factory has 2 main areas, Gundam Dock and Gundam-Lab. Gundam lab has an Academy, the Gundam Base, and Gundam Cafe.
The sponsorship message is between the video’s four and five-minute marks. The second half of the video focuses more on store merch and amusement park food.
There’s more from Japan on TKSST, including these:
• Ghibli’s Gentoro at the Toyama Glass Art Museum
• Covered with bunnies on Japan’s Rabbit Island
• Making a rice straw animal sculpture, a time-lapse for the Wara Art Festival
• Yukino-otani, the huge snow walls of the Tateyama Snow Corridor
