Hiroshima Trip 2018 - Day 5 - Kure - Part 1 - Submarine and Kure JMSDF Museum
Day 5, a very relaxing day, after breakfast, we took the JR local train from Hiroshima Station to Kure Station which is about 45 minutes ride away. Plan to visit the small little town of Kure and the Museum. Hubby was very interested in visiting the submarine. Breakfast at one of the nice cozy cafe on street level in Hiroshima Station facing the street car (tram car) station. After 45 minutes ride in the local train, we finally arrived at Kure Station. Easy to navigate the small town, lots of sign at the train station to direct us to JMSDF Museum. First, we stopped by the tourist information office to collect some maps of Kure Town. The tourist information office was very cozy, free wifi, reading materials, etc. The staff could speak english and very friendly. The submarine is very huge, easily spotted, just walked towards the submarine where the JMSDF Museum is located and admission is free. Read more about the museum from official website. We could walked into the submarine to view it. A very first experience for me to walk into the submarine, very nice.
