Hey there! I'm Maki, your friendly local host here in beautiful Hiroshima! What I adore most about Hiroshima is its rich tapestry of history, both the positive strides toward peace and the resilience in the face of adversity. When I'm not soaking in our stunning natural surroundings, you'll often find me wandering between the ancient temples or strolling through the charming streets of our traditional Japanese old town. As your go-to Hiroshima guru, I'm here to guide you through must-see spots and hidden gems of the city! And if you're craving a dose of art and culture, I'll happily point you in that direction. So, whether you're seeking tranquility in nature or craving a taste of authentic Hiroshima food, let's embark on an unforgettable journey together. I can't wait to show you the magic of this incredible city!
