Since its birth as Japan's first full-fledged racing course in 1962, Suzuka Circuit has been the center of Japanese motorsports.The Formula One Japanese Grand Prix, launched in 1987, while the "Coca-Cola Zero"(R) Suzuka 8hours World Endurance Road Race racks up its 30th race. Both races are well-established as big events beyond the framework of motorsports. While hosting races, Suzuka Circuit has also been engaged in promoting motorsports culture. As part of this effort, a racing school was established to nurture drivers and riders able to compete at an international level.At the amusement park Motopia, there is a diverse range of driving entertainment for young children. This is based on the corporate vision of cultivating "future fans" and promoting car culture in Japan. We have also focused on traffic safety education, along with providing an environment and services worthy of a resort, a place where you can enjoy a holiday with a quality hotel and restaurants. We have proactively developed innovative leisure facilities and services in step with the times. At the root of all these activities lie our spirit of "hospitality" and the "mobility resort" concept. Suzuka Circuit offers a racing arena, along with other motorsports and entertainment. From children to adults, there is something here to excite the hearts of people from all over the world.

Great viewing circuit, easy to commute from Nagoya to Suzuka by train on either the "Express" or "Limited Express" both going to the same destination during the GP. a little confusing at first but basically the Limited Express get there faster in around 45/50mins and the Express around 10 minutes slower as it stops at more stations. The Limited Express... More

You have to be into motor racing or else it can get pretty boring. Lots of children in the stands but they fell asleep or else were eating away. Food was available in plenty.

Very far from Nagoya. About 2-3 hours of commuting. We walked over 10KM that day. The variety of food kiosks is amazing from mexican to arab food. The track is striking and is very well maintained. Take enough cash and be prepared to walk a lot but you will have an amazing time.

Legendary circuit! We had a great view from turn 1-2, grandstand B2. Book seats towards the right of the stand as you view the circuit, you see pit exit, start finish and turns 1-5! You can go on the Ferris wheel free with your race ticket. General admission is also good here. Good food and drink, reasonable prices. Race fans... More

Very fun park by the circuit. Some shopping and places to eat as well. Only one ATM in the whole place. The circuit itself is awesome

The Suzuka 8 hour motorcycle race is really designed for Japanese people only. I had wanted to see this race all. my life and finally done it this year. If I didn't know anyone at the race, I would have been really disappointed. My tickets were a disaster. I bought them through their local ticket agency called Lawson Ticket. The... More

I enjoyed the small, but expanding, theme park at the Suzuka Circuit. There were rides to cater to all of the family.

A good place for family with small children. Parking is abundant but VERY far away if you arrive late in the day. Cost quite a fortune and you have to pay additional for each ride. Check the website carefully. Parking cost 1000yen but can be rebated if you spend money in the entertainment park.
