If you’re interested in the history of Kure, take time to climb the Rekishi no Mieru Oka Hill that overlooks the old navy shipyard where the Yamato was built.

The docks here are currently being reconstructed but you can see the shed where the vessel was built and the shell of the main gun armor. Also visible is the Samurai (Oh) Battleship Yamato Tower and a stone monument to the former Naval Factory.
