The story of Yamato Group's founder
The display introduces the early days of the company from its establishment, along with the transition of Ginza, where the company was founded. Exhibitions provide a glimpse of the business activities at that time, such as the vehicles and uniforms, as well as a sense of how the original ideas of Yasuomi Ogura as the company founder and a business person were created, which have been passed down to the present day.
Creating new business ahead of its time
The display introduces the background and structure of Japan’s first regular route transport service, and the diversification of post-war business. A replica of a sales office, advertisements, and other materials of Yamato used back in those days are also displayed.
Birth and growth of TA-Q-BIN
We follow the trajectory of “TA-Q-BIN”, which saved Yamato from a management crisis, from its invention through to its establishment in people’s lives. It explores Masao Ogura's spirit of challenge and business administration, which led to the success of the TA-Q-BIN despite many struggles.
Challenges with the future in mind
The Yamato Group’s initiatives are introduced that continue with society and customers, including the new value of logistics created in response to diversifying needs and TA-Q-BIN evolving in response to changing lifestyles.
The circular theater displays dynamic images on a 14-meter wide screen. Enjoy the story that links 100 years of Yamato and four generations of a family.
The display introduces the process leading to the arrival of TA-Q-BIN. Visitors can try on a sales driver's uniform and board a "walk-through car" equipped with useful functions and safety features.
At the end of the museum, there is a lounge area where Yamato Group creates a future city together with customers. In the library, visitors can freely watch videos shown in the museum as well as books on related topics.
