    Can I schedule a Grand Seiko tour?

    Does anybody know if Seiko allows members of the public to schedule factory tours?
    I'm interested in visiting the factories in Shiojiri and Morioka.
    If anyone has any information, or can point me in the right direction; it would be greatly appreciated.

    I plan on going for 2.5 weeks in late November to early December

    Thanks

    There is a Grand Seiko Owners Club on Facebook that has a bunch of friendly and knowledgeable people. Should ask there also.

    I know of two confirmed occasions of GS factory tours, but generally they are not open to the public. However there’s a Seiko museum in Tokyo which requires prior reservation for visits accessible to the public.

    And here’s some links to the articles covering one of those events:

    If you get access to anything, please take pictures if permitted.

    Have a good trip.

    Thanks for the replies everyone!

    I'll check out the FB group and the Tokyo museum.

    I saw that Fratello Watches page. That's why I thought I'd ask.
