Kure Battleship Tour & Sunset Cruise
This popular mini cruise around Kure harbor departs from Kure Central Pier Terminal. After sailing past colossal container ships being built in Kure’s famous shipyards, the cruise continues towards the battleships and submarines of the Japanese Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF). You can sit on the open deck and take it all in as you listen to the guide’s in-depth explanations.
The final cruise of the day is a little special. The “Sunset Yukure Cruise” leaves the pier in time with the setting sun and approaches the JMSDF battleships as they lower their flags to the sound of the Kure naval trumpet. Don’t miss out on Kure’s Battleship Tour & Sunset Cruise – a once-in-a-lifetime experience on Kure’s Battleship Tour & Sunset Cruise.
