Visit Yamato Museum to learn about the "history of Kure"--the modern Japanese history after the Meiji Era--as well as Japan's shipbuilding technology and iron industry. Opened in 2005, the museum's pride remains its 1/10 scale model of the battleship Yamato. Head further along to see other artifacts like a Zero fighter plane Type 62, manned World War II torpedoes and suicide crafts, and a midget submersible research vehicle of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The parking lot usually has enough space for visitors. Take a look at our Kure road trip website to schedule your visit to Yamato Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
Yamato Museum Reviews
てつのくじら館の近くにあり、こちらは入館有料の施設です。特別展やセット料金など料金体系が違います。もう少しみる場所が欲しいです。 more »It is located near the Tetsukujirakan, and this is a facility that pays to enter the building. The fee structure such as special exhibition and set fee is different. I want a place to see a little more.
先日九州からの観光客として初体験しました。閑古鳥が鳴いているかと思いきや、想定外の大盛況ぶりに恐れ入谷の鬼子母神。戦艦大和のスケールモデルを激写したのはもちろんです。後から判ったことですが、大盛況の原因は艦これ関連のイベントでした。 more »The other day I experienced it for the first time as a tourist from Kyushu. I thought that the old bird was singing, and the Oniko mother god of Iriya was afraid of the great success of the unexpected. Of course, i took a sharp picture of the scale model of the battleship Yamato. As I found out later, the cause of the great success was the event related to ship this.
Easy accessible by JR train 30 min from Hiroshima. Nice museum and giftshop but very limited english
I was surprised to find this so interesting, as I’m not so into warships, but this museum was just as much about local history, which was really informative and a good accompaniment to the Hiroshima memorials. They have a great app with English, Chinese and Korean audio commentary, a well-stocked gift shop, and friendly, helpful staff.
