The Miyajima – Kure Blue Line (direct service) 2023 Timetable

Kure Hands-on Experience

The Blue Line high-speed ferry service that connects Miyajima and Kure in as little as 45 minutes will be in operation again this year. After exploring Miyajima, it’s easy to hop on the Blue Line and skip across to Kure to visit sights like the Yamato Museum and the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) Kure Museum.

While in Kure, you can indulge in Kure navy curry, Kure cold noodles, and other local delicacies. The only stretch of outdoor ‘yatai’ food stalls in the region can be found in Kure. The 10 or so food stands on “Yatai Street” begin to open for business at sunset and you will find a mix of locals and tourists enjoying the local fare.

So take advantage of the Blue Line and visit two wonderful destinations in one day.
