  • Thank you deck equipped with cliffs on the seaward side of the Yamato Museum, modeled after the deck of the Yamato. I can feel the size of the battleship Yamato.

  • Yamato Museum pedestrianized and clean and feels good. Sitting on a bench overlooking the ferry coming into the Central Pier next to the lol reproduces the deck of the battleship is very interesting, I have inadvertently dash to the end peacefully. I recently also went, but now poke stop is a popular lol

  • Is the seaward side of the Yamato Museum Park. Clean sunset over time means that Yes it is. Mind is washed too far away Islands in the Seto Inland Sea and ship it to see.

  • Show piece museum on WW2 with battleships! Amazing displays and exhibits. You can purchase a stuffed doll zero fighter from the souvenir shop, the only place where you can do it.
  • 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
  • good place to visit, you will understand the Japanese navy developing history.
  • Such a cool place! Love the models
  • you have to come and to know more about this JAPANESE history, but there are some DIFFERENT with WORLD history which i know..
