The might and splendor of the battleship Yamato was shown as well as how it was brought down by the night of air power!
It was awesome and so very informative.

It's more than just about a ship, even tho there is a focus on the ship and its sister.
It's inexpensive (the other one's even free), and i recommend visiting both.
It goes quite a bit into Kures naval history wich i found very interesting....More
While the large Yamato model is the centerpiece for the musuem, there are some very informative exhibits surrounding the model. These exhibits give details on the modernization of the Japanese navy prior to WW2, and the story of the Yamato up until it's sinking at...More
We were drawn to this place due to the legacy of the Yamato battleship, and mainly for the model. The model itself is impressive, but would not justify the 500 yens fee in any way. There is, however, much more to see in the museum...More

The place is awesome, to see the Yamato in 1:10 Scale, you can image the size of that thing. Like all Japanese museums, are not made for foreigners, explanations lack of depth, and you can tell that there is more to say, although in Japanese...More
The Yamato Museum takes you back to the days when the Yamato was the largest battleship to patrol the seas. The scale models are interesting and kids, especially boys, like it (at least that has been our experience). If you go to Kure and have...More
We visited this museum when we visited our son and his family-stationed in Japan at the time. We thoroughly enjoyed the museum. They have headsets for non-Japanese speaking visitors to wear that tell you most of what you see throughout the museum. The scale-model replica...More
Having visited the nearby free Museum featuring a real-sized giant submarine, my wife and I also visited this pay Museum on January 12, 2018. Although the staff service and facilities were not bad, my wife was particularly disappointed to see just a 90% shrink-sized fake...More

I did not understand what you were talking about so I checked the Yamato Museum on line shopping site and knew that the calendar is available at Yen1,080 but they will send it only to a local address(not overseas) at Yen600. I think you should ask your local friend to get it and send to your address.
My itinerary is finally complete and I’d like to hear your opinions before considering it settled! Have in mind I won’t be taking any shinkansen, only local trains, and I’m mostly hiking instead of taking ropeways up mountains because of money. Fri 24 June) Arrival late at Hiroshima Airport, go to hostel and basically sleep. Sat 25 June) HIROSHIMA (Peace Memorial Museum, Heiwakinen Park, Hiroshima hypocenter, Shukkuen, Hiroshima Castle, Atomic Bomb Dome, Honkawa Elementary School )....More

Yamato Museum: Need help to go there... (4 Replies)
Hello Hiroshima Experts, Can anyone give me detail instruction how to go to Yamato Museum from Hiroshima JR station please? Thank you very much.

Hello William12. Thank you for your reply. I did check the Yamato Museum web page you referred before. It mentioned that a bus ride is needed from the Kure JR station to the museum. So I was confused where I can take the bus. Based on the information you provided, it seems that it is a walking distance from the Kure JR station to the museum. So I guess I can just walk from the JR station to the museum then. Thank you for your confirmation.
Is Yamato Museum open on 30 or 31 dec 2014? (5 Replies)
