Hiroshima Like a Local: Customized Guided Tour

1. Hiroshima Like a Local: Customized Guided Tour

Explore the city with a friendly local who is passionate about his/her city and eager to share all the tips and tricks that will help you make the most of your trip. Meet where you're staying to get familiar with the neighbourhood, find out about the best places to eat and buy groceries, the easiest ways to get around, and the hidden gems you might have missed. By the end of the tour, you'll feel more comfortable in navigating the city and confident that you have all the information you need to make the most of your stay. Once we receive your booking, the supplier get in touch with you to confirm all the details for the tour: meeting place and time, language and your contact information, and also ask you some questions to get to know you better. They will hand-pick the right local for you based on your interests. Each tour is completely customized so you can choose the meeting location, start time and length that you prefer (minimum: 2 hours).  During the walking tour you will have the option of taking public transportation or taxi to get around the city (at your expense). The local guides (Lokafyers) are locals who are passionate about their city and love to meet travellers and share what they love about their city.  They are not professional tour guides and do these tours occasionally, which provides an authentic and personal experience that is like having a friend show you around their home city.  Through conversations with your Lokafyer, you’ll learn what it’s like to live in Hiroshima, learn about cultural differences, local events and politics and also get to know each other on a personal level. With this experience, you won’t be just passing through the city, you’ll be part of it.

What people are saying about Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum

My tour with Saúl was very informative and fun. He had only lived in Hiroshima for a year but could already tell me a lot about the culture, history and meaning behind things. All of those things I wouldn‘t have been able to find in a travel guide so I‘m very glad I booked this tourand would recommend this to everyone who wants to learn about Hiroshima and japanese culture in general.

Friendly, courteous and helpful young man

Shinichi san planned the trip based on our interest. He explained the history and shared his personal story of a relative that offered us insights to the difficult period of re-building Hiroshima after the 1945 bombing. Shinichi san spoke good English. He paid attention to details and took good care of us.

This was fantastic. Our tour guide, Shinichi, was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We only had one day in Hiroshima and he made it one of the most memorable and enjoyable of our trip
