Historic Town of Kure

久礼の町並み(Kure No Machinami)
A Charming Traditional Japanese Fishing Village
Kure was a town at the bustling with commerce and trade from its robust fishing and logging industries throughout history. The town’s economic importance spans over centuries and the impact of that is still visible today.
Special sinks for filleting fish called nagashi-dai are installed at the entrance of the post-war Showa-era homes and the narrow meandering streets will lead you to a sake brewery on the town’s main street, Honmachi-Dori, or the local fish market, Kure Taisho Market, where the day’s catch will be served as seafood bowl.
The retro-vibes of the post-war buildings wrapped in a deep and rich history made Kure a Nationally Important Cultural Property in 2011; visiting the town is like entering living museum of Japanese history where the lifestyle and culture of the past is not a distant memory but still engraved in the lives of the residents today.
