Nintendo announced that its Uji Ogura Factory will become a public display “to display the many products Nintendo has released throughout its history.” Located in the Ogura district of Uji, a city on the outskirts of Kyoto, the factory was built in 1969 and was primarily used to make Hanafuda playing cards and playing cards, which is how Nintendo started as a company in the 19th century.
“Nintendo is discussing the possibility of creating an exhibition, as a way to share the history and philosophy of Nintendo product development with the public,” the company says in statement. To this end, the Nintendo Uji Ogura factory will be renovated to host the exhibition, a decision made after taking into account the city of Uji’s plan to rebuild the area near Ogura Station.
Nintendo expects the fair to be completed in the fiscal year April 1, 2023, through March 31, 2024. The working title is currently “The Nintendo Show.” This facility will undoubtedly be popular with tourists visiting Kyoto, many of whom make pilgrimages to the Nintendo headquarters even though it is a non-descript office building that is closed to the public. And of course, New Super Nintendo World Region Universal Studios Japan is located near the neighboring city of Osaka.
