Hey there! I'm Ryoga, your humorous and friendly local host in the captivating city of Hiroshima. What I absolutely adore about Hiroshima is the vibrant vibe of Miyajima. It's a treasure trove with its old town charm, awe-inspiring shrines, and majestic mountains that beg to be explored. Oh, and let's not forget the culinary delight that is Hiroshima's local food! My heart sings for okonomiyaki, and trust me, you'll love it too! I know Hiroshima like the back of my hand, especially the central area where the bomb was once dropped, the legendary pirates of Hiroshima, the valiant Murakami Suigun, and the enchanting wonders of Miyajima. So, let's embark on a friendly and spirited journey together! With me as your guide, you'll experience the heart and soul of Hiroshima, the warmest hospitality, and the laughter that echoes through the city!
