Origin of city name

There are several theories[7].

  • The mountain range that surrounds the Kure area is called "Kyurei", and it becomes "Kure".In addition, the city emblem is associated with this,KatakanaIt is a star-shaped object with nine "re" s.[8].
  • It is derived from the fact that Kure (meaning Kure, plate material) cut down from Ashigamine became famous as a special product.
  • A long time ago, the migrants from the ancient Korean Peninsula who lived around this region were called "Kurejin", and it is said that they became "Kure" over time.



There is a Kure city song donated by the Kure Nihon Shimbun and designated in 1928.[20][Annotation 1].
