  • Has become the spot can feel a distance from the bow of Yamato to the bridge. On the seaward side of the Yamato Museum and tanker built in dock in Kure Harbor Pier and entry-exit ships can admire ships to ferry, as well as self-defense. In the cold winter is the season when crowded with families and couples, ship enthusiasts.

  • Friends said the Museum would pay super. We were a little disappointed then, when it was just a model of one in ten. The original is rugged mountain 40 m deep off Okinawa. A very interesting Museum, which is not a glorification of war.

  • 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
