YouMe Town Kure (ゆめタウン呉)

Just five minutes of crossing the skybridge coming out of JR Kure Station takes visitors to YouMe Town Kure, which is a large shopping mall that prides itself on its prominent scale and structure. Because it is connected to tourist attractions such as the Yamato Museum and the JMSDF (Iron Whale) Museum, not just locals, but tourists to Kure from outside the city, prefecture, or country pass through this mall in large numbers.

At YouMe Town Kure, there is a wide array of establishments available, from old stores that have a connection to Kure City to global brands like Starbucks. One can buy a variety of products such as “Melonpan,” “Tobikiri Cider,” and other Kure specialties from food stands that local industries in particular have put their backs into. Additionally, because there is a dermatologist, a dentist, and a pharmacy inside the mall, tourists who get sick or sustain an injury in the middle of their trip can also breathe a sigh of relief.
