Dive! Hiroshima Official Guide

Dive! Hiroshima Official Guide

    During the war, Kure prospered as the “best military port in the East”.

    Also, before the war, Etajima means the Naval Academy, and it was the base of the Japanese Navy.

    Against this background, there are many valuable relics that leave traces of war, such as the ruins of gun batteries and the Zero War, in the two cities.

    As you follow these historical sites, let's renew your thoughts of memorial service for the war dead and pray for world peace.

    On the other hand, this area also has the charm of being immersed in the idyllic scenery of Setouchi and the unique atmosphere of a port town.
