"What is the Yamato museum?

The Yamato museum opened in 2005 and has become a major tourist spot in Kure.

The Yamato battleship, from which it is dubbed the museum, was built in a factory in the Kure navy in December of 1941.

With direct control of the Navy's factory, the ship was built in absolute secrecy using the latest technologies from Japan, and at that time was the largest in the world.

Currently, an 1: 10 scale model of the original battleship is housed in the museum and was recreated using various documents and the latest data investigated and collected from the seabed, where the original ship was sunk.

The model is continually renewed as new data is found. The original Yamato battleship was sunk when it was traveling to Okinawa by an attack of United States aircraft in 7 1945 of April.

Of the 3332 people aboard, 3056 died. Bus access: 5 minutes walk from Kure station on JR Kure line (approx 50 minutes from Hiroshima station). By bus: 50 are minutes away from the Hiroshima bus terminal and 5 minutes walk from the Kure-eki-mae stop. The island of Itsukushima is one of the many islands of the Inner Sea (Japanese: 瀬 戸 内海, Seto Naikai) and is where the highest mountain in the region, Mount Misen (530m) is located.

Due to the Shinto custom of mountain worship the site was considered sacred - and as such sealed to human presence from ancient times. Thus, the Sanctuary was built on the water, next to the island, which is now considered a natural park.
