Yamato Museum

Issei Omori

The Yamato Museum is where you can find a 1/10 scale model of the famous battleship Yamato – the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet of World War II. Despite its size, the model was created to be as close to the original as possible; I find it an amazing replica.

During the war, battleship Yamato was thought to be ‘unsinkable’. Imagine the shock the Japanese felt when it sunk!

The museum also houses many other exhibitions and seasonal events, like airplane modelling classes.

Also, if you don’t speak Japanese, use the free audio commentary devices provided at the museum. Enjoy!

大和ミュージアムでは、10分の1スケールの”戦艦大和”が見れます。
戦艦大和とは、第二次世界大戦頃に活躍した戦艦で、
大きさ以外は忠実に当時の戦艦大和が再現されています。

戦時中、戦艦大和は、“不沈艦”と呼ばれており、敵国の砲撃にやられ
沈んでしまった時に、日本に大きな衝撃が走ったと言われています。

また戦艦だけでなく、科学イベントも充実しています。
科学イベント(例:飛行機の模型を作って飛行機の仕組みを知るイベントなど)は、
月や季節ごとにイベント変わり、いつ訪れても楽しむことができます。
展示内容を解説してくれる展示解説ツアーもあり、
無料で参加することができるので初めて参加する人も安心ですよ。
