4.3/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Pretty close to the train station where says put in less than 10 minutes on foot from Kure station. Buy a ticket (500 yen) at the ticket vending machine and entering greets model of the battleship Yamato (1 / 10th). And model to say with considerable fidelity to detail is reproduced. You can see times other torpedo parts Yara aircraft exhibits, Yamato was built, and so.

  • 1 / 10 scale Yamato well designed. Watch actual bad words, but I felt great model!. Valuable exhibits and photos of members of the crew of Yamato, letter, etc., there is a lot of people and noisy, look and prominence. On the kaiten and zero fighter exhibits, as well. And you want to see better on weekdays may be. Higher expectations only, now in this evaluation.

  • Think some people allergic to learn effective battleship, but without a war tribute without mourning more than historical facts and I've told. That said, excellent as a tourist destination. I'd elaborate exhibits zero fighter and Yamato scale model exhibit will take a look at Kamakura. Cafe corner lemonade is delicious.

  • Incredible museum and the 26 meters long model od the ship is simply amazing. If you are a fan of Japanese navy or battleships in general, this museum is a must. Full of artefacts recovered from the wreckage, interesting diagrams and more. Don't forget to take a picture by the ship and see the wharf modelled by the Yamato's bow
  • Such a cool place! Love the models
  • Really worth going.
  • Very interesting site. The top-floor is especially interesting to explain kids about physics associated with navigation.
  • Ship came under the influence of this! Real's zero fighter also! It is vital to Admiral!
