Valentine’s Day Chocolates in Original Plaza Wrapping

How about visiting the Plaza with your family or that special someone over the weekend of February 8 (Sat.) and 9 (Sun.)? While it is a few days before Valentine’s Day itself, we’ll be offering complimentary chocolates in original motorcycle- and car-themed wrapping (twelve types in all) for the first 300 visitors on each day!

The Plaza will also add some interior decorations for Valentine's Day. We’ve set up a spot for photos where couples can sit side-by-side on the seats of one of our cruiser models on display and take some snapshots to commemorate the day, their affection and the visit (a smartphone selfie stand will be set up). Admission and exhibit viewing is free, so please stop by for some photos and chocolate with Yamaha on Valentine’s Day!

American Pop and Rock Live Concert

The Plaza will host a small live concert by The Coast to Coast. This seven-person band was formed in 2010 by lovers of American music that had been performing independently at their own local events. They will perform American West Coast rock and AOR (Adult-Oriented Rock) hits from the 1970s and ‘80s still loved around the world today by stars like Boz Scaggs and the Eagles. The lyrics and melodies will no doubt conjure up imagery of the skies, waters and breezes of the West Coast. Admission is free.

History Zone Renovation and New Waterside Artwork Display

The repair and maintenance work on the exterior of the Communication Plaza is complete, giving it a new face for 2020. Also, parts of the History Zone areas on the 2nd floor have been renovated and will greet visitors with a fresh appearance.

Firstly, the many historic Yamaha products on display are central to the 2nd floor, and the exhibit explaining the meaning and specifics behind our ongoing efforts to restore such models as well as to keep them in running condition has been made a permanent part of the Plaza on the back wall. This is intended to deepen visitor understanding of the work that goes into the models from our past on display.

Secondly, behind the viewing platform that looks down on the racebikes of the past and present, a chronology of Yamaha’s global race accolades dating back to the company’s earliest years is now on display. This chronology lists the unbroken line of racing challenges Yamaha has undertaken and triumphed in throughout its history.

Also, by early February 2020, the 43 winning paintings of the 31st National Children’s Waterside Painting Contest held annually by the Yamaha Motor Foundation for Sports will be on display in front of the Plaza Lounge on the 2nd floor.

Be sure to give this a look as well!
