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.

  • This hotel located across the street in the Yamato Museum is a center of the maritime self-defense force. It is a pretty good location, say in a 10-minute walk from Kure station. Money is required to enter is kind to your wallet. Corner of mine removal, and inside corners of the submarine (take a picture in the bed of a submarine) with pretty attractions. You can watch in the touch into the inside of a submarine is exhibited on the outside.

  • Retired submarine "perforated salt" of the submarine exhibit and the exhibition on mine clearance activities will be mainly. Put in the command room of the submarine in the brain the periscope. Still better than real ones. I felt sweeping exhibition very interesting and more good after appeal to the people of the world. When you go to the Yamato Museum is free from to come.

  • Knowing that the removal of the mine after the Pacific war, most were now embarrassed. I know the history here, but may need more time to visit the Yamato Museum slowly and with great facilities.
