    Hiroshima Pref. Kureshi Takaramachi 5-20
    A museum which presents the history of the city of Kure, which prospered as a shipbuilding town and which was the location where the battleship Yamato was built as well as numerous large tankers which served after the Second World War. A one tenth scale Yamato battleship model stands in the Yamato Hiroba in the museum and is the centerpiece of the museum’s exhibits. The first floor exhibition room presents historical materials relating to Kure from the end of the shogunate government up through Japan’s postwar period as well as a real Zero Fighter Type 62 and a Kaiten Human Torpedo Type 10. On the third floor, visitors can learn scientific and technological principles with a focus on ships via interactive exhibits such as a ship piloting simulator. The “Kaigun-san no Curry,” traditional Japanese naval-style curry sold in the museum shop, makes a popular souvenir.

    The might and splendor of the battleship Yamato was shown as well as how it was brought down by the night of air power! It was awesome and so very informative. Don’t forget to check out the...

    Hiroshima Pref. Kureshi Takaramachi 5-32
    It is a public relations facility of the Maritime Self-Defense Force in Kure City. It has been opened free of charge to the public since 2007. An authentic large submarine is displayed onshore and is a valuable spot where you can actually board the vessel and see and experience the life and environment inside a submarine. In addition, there are exhibits introducing the history of the Maritime Self-Defense Force and its relationship with Kure, and introduces the threat of mines and the activities of mine-sweeping vessels. There is also a shop where you can purchase Self- Defense Force goods and souvenirs of Kure.

    This is a nice little cafe in the JMSDF Submarine Museum. The menu is only in Japanese and there is only a limited selection of food and drink but still enough to satisfy for a quick snack break...

    A museum housed in the Former Official Residence of the Commander-in-Chief of the Kure Naval Station, a National Important Cultural Property built in 1905, located inside Irifuneyama Park a 13 minute walk from Kure Station. The museum building consists of a wooden Western-style structure as well as a Japanese-style hall. The Western portion of the building has a British-style exterior; the drawing room, decorated with rare “kinkarashi” gold patterned Japanese leather paper is a must-see. The grounds are also dotted with cultural properties and facilities where visitors can learn about the history of Kure since the Meiji period, including a hall dedicated to local culture, historical folk custom exhibit, and small clock tower once used at the former Kure naval arsenal.

    The main attraction in this place is the house of Japan Marine Commander in Kure. The house is unique because the front sidenis western style but the rear sude is Japanese style. There is also...

    Hiroshima Pref. Kureshi Kurahashichou Sainoki 171-7

    倉橋は造船の盛んな町として有名で、遣唐使船の建造から始まり、江戸時代の中期には木造船の建造が最盛期を迎えました。造船歴史館は倉橋に伝わる木造船の造船技術を後世に伝えるために、平成4年の旧倉橋町の町制施行40周年記念事業として建設されました。また、倉橋島はかつては長門島と呼ばれていたので、「長門の造船歴史館」というそうです。復元遣唐使船には実際に乗船することもできます。

    Hiroshima Higashihiroshima-shi Takayacho Shirai 1046-1

    何故?このような山中に江戸時代の豪商の旧家が…? 現地ガイドの説明を聞いて納得しました。(笑) 江戸時代にここからかなり離れた竹原地区で塩田(製塩)開発が盛ん行われたおりましたがそれを統治管轄してましたのが、ここの白市の豪商木原家でした。 ここは古くからの製塩技術ややそれに伴う道具を見ることのできる貴重な資料館&建築物です。ぜひ江戸時代の製塩豪商の貴重な資料と住宅を見るべきでしょう!

Hiroshima Main Areas

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
