  • First enters the eye of real submarines "perforated salt" would be. No huge ship body enters the eye, as well (2/2017 current makeup renumbering). Museum exhibits can know the maritime self-defense force's history and activities. Head down to protect safety at sea, you can't defend the minesweeping operations to remove mines from the world's oceans and countries work. Interesting submarine history. But nothing else to see the decommissioned ship "perforated salt" of real internal. You can know the real self-defense forces spearheading the defense to say officers such as Director of rooms and room and the children's lives. Of self-defense only if we imagine this life to endure my mentality is awesome. Facilities will be on the third and fourth time, but hadn't noticed the cafe on the ground floor. Rice was the submarine-shaped perforated went because it was crowded at lunchtime for the salt Curry, but look forward to the Yamato Museum next door. Sold out. Ahead you in line if you'd like, too. There are many toy stores, anchor watermarked t-shirt and CAP, available only here, so I would really take a look at.

  • It was began incorporating a scaffolding painting so far. I'd seen the whole avoided at that time was scheduled by the end of March. Many landmine removal work exhibits on-site to retired people who are awaiting explanation and guidance in some places, seemed humbled. Dressed in uniforms, photographs taken place and, shop, and enjoy.

  • Irresistible to the submarine enthusiasts, I got to go. Real submarines to see especially think it's a feature not available in other institutions. Pretty good sense at the souvenir shop.
