Irifuneyama Memorial Museum呉市入船山記念館

Museum / Science Museum

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.

          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.
