Learn about the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force at JMSDF Kure Museum, a cultural institution dedicated to submarines and, in particular, their use in minesweeping activities throughout the 20th century. With a wealth of artifacts, including weapons and equipment related to missions and daily life onboard, the facility tells the story of technological and geopolitical developments in the post-war era. Climb aboard the Akishio SS-579, a sub that served from 1985 to 2004, to see the cramped living conditions and hear about the impressive work done by those onboard.
