Full description
Meet your local guide in Hiroshima and head out of the city for a 40-minute train ride that will lead you to the port and major ship building city of Kure, situated on the Seto Inland Sea.

The itinerary can be customized according to your interests. You could visit the Yamato Museum, where you can learn about the largest battleship in the world. Here you can also explore a collection of authentic relics from World War II. 

If submarines are more your thing, the JMSDF Kure Museum awaits. Just next door to Yamato, this museum is shaped like a huge submarine. Known as the “Iron Whale Museum'', here you can browse torpedos, vessel parts and just about everything else you’d hope to see at a world-class military museum.

Try their famed Navy Curry, a Japanese curry that originated inside the battleships of the Meiji Era, more than a century ago.
