There is direct JR from Hiroshima to Kure.

From Kure JR station it is less than 10 min walk to the Yamato Museum.

Hello William12. Thank you for your reply.

I did check the Yamato Museum web page you referred before. It mentioned that a bus ride is needed from the Kure JR station to the museum. So I was confused where I can take the bus. Based on the information you provided, it seems that it is a walking distance from the Kure JR station to the museum. So I guess I can just walk from the JR station to the museum then. Thank you for your confirmation.

Hi Seohyun, how involved do you want to get into the legend of the battleship Yamato!? The most recent movie about Yamato was made in 2005 and the location site with a life-size mock up of part of the ship is located in a shipyard in the town of Onomichi and is opened for visit.

Yes, the Yamato Museum is across the street from the train station. Be sure to visit the Japan Self Defense Forces submarine museum next door, in the parking lot next to the train station. You can actually tour the inside of an actual sub on the premises. This is an excellent blog which frankly, gives too much away:

And I thought I took a lot of pictures of the place!
