Full description

Join a friendly guide to get an authentic experience of Hiroshima on a personalized tour of its highlights and hidden gems. Your guide is passionate about the place they call home and chooses to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Marvel at the city’s unknown history, fascinating culture, and fantastic food scene as you’re led down its liveliest streets, as well as those off the well-trodden tourist trail.

Begin your experience by taking a serene stroll through 400-year-old Shukkei-en, a tranquil Japanese garden and a survivor of the atomic bomb. Explore the Peace Memorial Park and Atomic Bomb Dome, both must-sees to fully comprehend Hiroshima’s strength and resilience, and then grab a bite at Okonomimura, or Okonomiyaki Village.

There, several restaurants under a single roof serve the food locals love most: Hiroshima Okonomiyaki, the city’s unique take on Japan’s famous "everything pancake." Pass by a collection of oyster huts and restaurants selling some of Hiroshima’s best delicacies, then head to buzzing Nagarekawa, the city’s ultimate party and entertainment district, where you’ll peer into hip bars and quirky cafes lining neon-lit streets.

In downtown Hiroshima, keep the party vibe going in the buzzing, bar-lined Ekinishi neighborhood, packed with trendy haunts and diverse restaurants housed in renovated buildings. Catch your breath with a peaceful walk through Hiroshima Minato Park at the city’s port, and if you still have time and energy to spare, take a hike up Mount Haigamine for a bird's-eye view of the sparkling sea and city that’s widely believed to be one of the most beautiful in the region.

Your personalized itinerary will be planned according to the number of hours booked and adapted to your preferences.
