Hi there!!This is Chika from J-Hoppers Hiroshima.
Today,I recommend you a good place for a day trip from Hiroshima city.
Kure is a city in Hioroshima prefecture.
It takes around 50 minutes by JR local train and cost around 480yen .
But if you have a JR rail pass,you don't need buy a ticket!!How nice :-)
There are lots of places to see and visit in Kure which is like JMSDF Kure Museum,Yamato Museum,
snd if you walk down the river side,there are lots of stalls in the evening!!
The Yamato Museum is a nickname of the "Kure Maritime Museum" in Kure.
The museum opened on April 23, 2005. It is nicknamed the Yamato Museum due to the display in the lobby of the large model ship Yamato Hiroba, a 1/10 scale model of the Japanese battleship Yamato.
*JMSDF Kure Museum
The museum is free and covers the mine sweeping and submarine missions of the JMSDF. At the end of the tour of the displays you can go through an actual submarine.
Besides,they have some specialty food in Kure,like Kure reimen(Noodle),Fry cake(deep fried doughnut)
Even is you are not really interested in submarine and battle ship, I think you can enjoy it!!
