Hiroshima Plant is an automobile manufacturing complex in Aki and Ujina, Hiroshima, Japan operated by Mazda Motor Corporation. The complex consists of two main elements, the head office in Aki District, and the main plant in nearby Ujina District. It was Mazda's only car-assembly plant in Japan until the Hofu Plant opened in 1982.
The plant complex includes Plants I and II (officially "U1" and "U2" for their Ujina location). The total complex is 1.69 km2 (420 acres) in size.
Ujina 1 opened in November 1966.
Ujina 2's engine plant opened in December 1964, with the current automobile assembly plant opening in December 1972.
A former temporary worker at the plant killed one person and injured ten others by using his car as a weapon in June 2010.
