Yamato Museum (大和ミュージアム)

Museum / Science Museum

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.

          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.
