朝鮮通信使などについて学べる展示館です。館内(園内)は広く、いくつかの建物に分かれています。個人的にそのなかで好きなのが、朝鮮通信使に出していた食べ物のレプリカが展示されているところです。なかは撮影禁止なので写真はありませんが、贅をつくした料理のレプリカは見応えあります。

呉市下蒲刈島の三之瀬地区にあります。この地区は昔は多くの船が立ち寄った場所で、朝鮮通信使なども訪れたそうです。そのときの様子などがわかる資料館もあります。

下蒲刈町にあります。4つの施設がありました。朝鮮通信資料館と蒲刈島御番所を見学しました歴史を紹介していました。松の木が植えられ、静かで落ち着く場所でした。

          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.
