What you'll do

Foodies are in for a treat with the lively food culture in Hiroshima! Follow your local guide downtown as you discover hidden gems and traditional dishes. From sampling delicious oysters, which are produced abundantly here, to tucking into a forkful of national identity with ‘Hiroshima Okonomiyaki’ - much like the famed Japanese pancake dish but this version also contains yakisoba noodles and is fried in mouth-watering layers. Explore onwards to a standing bar where you can tick off local delicacies and craft beer from your list. Post this refueling, there’ll be time to wander through the beautiful Shukkeien Japanese gardens to catch a traditional tea ceremony and nibble away at the maple-leaf shaped cakes ‘Momiji manjū’ as your dessert.

Where you'll go

Just a short walk from the station, you’ll explore the incredible beauty of the Shukkeien Japanese gardens, more than 400 years old and having survived the Atomic bomb. The bamboo forest provides the perfect backdrop to enjoy a traditional tea ceremony in a typical Japanese tea house. From here, head to a local standing bar serving up all the tastes of Hiroshima, sample away at many small portions and local craft beers. Next up is lunch, where together with your guide you can choose from a lineup of the most loved Okonomimura stalls. Hiroshima Okonomiyaki is the ultimate must-try - this heavenly combo of cabbage, bean sprouts, noodles, and dried bonito flakes will leave you forever wanting more and already planning your next visit.
