[View Cherry blossoms at Kushiyama Park! (Kure)]

See Kushiyama Park extending from Alley Karasukoujima to the mountainside.
Kushiyama Park is located behind the former Kure Naval Arsenal headquarters. It is an easy-to-climb mountain with an elevation of only 63 meters.
Although there was an air defense gun battery built there during the Second World War in 1942, it is no longer present. Still, remnants of the war can still be seen on the north, south, and west sides of the mountain’s base.

Kushiyama Park is a spot beloved by locals, and I have fond childhood memories of visiting it with my family to admire the cherry blossoms.
Every spring, 830 beautiful cherry trees greet visitors.
I recommend visiting the seaside of Kushiyama Park, where you can find one of the largest steel mills in Japan and a Maritime Self-Defense Force base.
The park is definitely worth a visit—it is a rare place where you can admire cherry blossoms and a stunning backdrop.

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!
