CREST is a shopping mall conjoined with JR Kure Station. It’s an optimal ten-second-walk away from the station, so it’s popular among locals doing a bit of shopping on their way to or from school or work. Inside, there’s a huge bookstore, a drug store, fast food outlets, and a supermarket, so it’s recommended to tourists who want to buy a little something during their trip.
Moment of Joy
The good part about CREST is how the supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, and every other establishment are compacted into one building. Because of that, visitors who are slightly under the weather, just want one drink, or have some other minor need will find CREST a satisfying one-stop shop. There’s even a ¥100 store inside, so customers can buy that one forgotten necessity in the middle of their vacation on the cheap.
