Nintendo announced that it will open a museum at the Nintendo Uji Ogura factory site in Kyoto. Tentatively named “Nintendo Museum“, the location used to house facilities for manufacturing hanafuda and playing cards, and assembling and repairing of game consoles.

The Nintendo Uji Ogura Factory was known as the “Uji Factory” when it was built in 1969, and was later renamed the “Uji Ogura Factory” in 1988, due to the construction, expansion, and renovation of the current “Uji Factory” in Makishima-cho, Uji City, Kyoto Prefecture.

The museum is slated to be completed in 2023, with the aim of attracting tourists for special exhibitions and unique experiences.
