Planning your trip to SETOUCHI

[Illumination Event–––Stardust Stage (Kure)]

Kuramoto-dori Avenue in Kure consists of various plazas and brick sidewalks and was developed as part of a model project to create an urban landscape with the aim of enriching the lives of city residents through the creation of a city with greenery, water, and culture.

In the daytime, Kuramoto-dori is one of my favorite places. But, this time, I would like to introduce the annual night illuminations on Kuramoto-dori.
This year’s theme is Stardust Stage.
Of course, I went there on the first day! I witnessed wonderful, colorful lights shining beautifully on the streets of Kure.
The Stardust Stage is filled with many dreams and wishes. Be sure to go with your friends and family members to Kuramoto-dori Avenue and see the stars!

You can also find Kure’s famous food stalls on Kuramoto-dori!

▼Recommended Tour

Kure Bay Ship Tour

Set sail on a cruise and get an up-close view of mighty ships (duration: about 30 minutes)! The evening cruise that departs at sunset is also highly recommended. *(You may want to use an extension to translate pages in Japanese.)



Konnichiwa! My name is Anne.
I live in a port town called Kure City, 40 minutes by car from Hiroshima City.
We have many beautiful islands. There is an abundance of seafood and fruits.
The place is surrounded by sea and mountains. You can experience walking on narrow streets, hiking on mountains and even climbing stairs.
Strolling around the town is also enjoyable.
You will surely find your own Seto Inland Sea trip here!
