Events, workshops, and outdoor activities in Kure City.

  • Renga Dori (or Renga Street) is a covered shopping arcade located about 15 minutes on foot from Kure Station.

  • Get a unique view of submarines in active service. Four red brick warehouses built around 1900 (during the Meiji era) stand behind you as you look over the subs.

  • The steps of Ryojyo appear in the film Sea Monkey in the scene where the divers are training by running up and down the stairs carrying oxygen tanks on their backs.

  • Youme Town is a centrally located shopping mall extremely close to Kure City’s train station, and just opposite the famous Yamato Museum.

  • Kure lies on the calm Seto Inland Sea, surrounded on three sides by green mountains. These geographical features led the Japanese Government to establish a navy base in Kure and, in 1903, the Kure naval arsenal.
