We will navigate a 3-hour stroll through the back streets of the entertainment district of Hiroshima trying excellent craft beers and sake and stopping off at bars, pubs and an izakaya, a traditional drinking house where locals gather with friends and colleagues to enjoy mouth-watering, small-plate dishes along with free-flowing drinks.
Feel free to personalize this offer with Hugh.
Meet downtown in amidst the district we will be exploring and take a relaxed stroll calling into craft beer bars and pubs to sample excellent craft beers from breweries throughout Japan. This includes a stop at a lively robatayaki grill in the Nagarekawa entertainment district in Hiroshima to try some of their scrumptious grills - always best to keep your stomach lined : ).

I am very familiar with leading tours throughout Japan so on occasion, I would be happy to create a bigger experience in other parts of the country if you would like to discuss directly with me.
***Please note that this is a three-stage process: We would agree on destinations and activities to be included. 2. I would compile an overview. 3. If that is accepted, the guest agrees to receive a detailed itinerary including information about attractions, activities and transit details.
**Depending on the guest's length of stay and the time required to produce the tour itinerary document the guest may be quoted a fee of my hourly rate up to a maximum charge of (8) eight hours and if satisfied, to agree to accept that (subject to some reasonable amendments), the agreement to receive the itinerary would be a binding contract to agree to pay for the itinerary with no further obligation to accept it as a tour offer.
**Please note that once step three has been started the guest agrees to the payment of the discussed fee.
This is a beer tasting and Japanese food experience and not a drinking binge. Under twenty-year-olds by law may not imbibe alcohol.

We had one day in Hiroshima and Hugh did a great job showing us the places.. it was a very informative but not tiring trip. Thanks Hugh
We spent a fantastic day in and around Hiroshima with Hugh. Hugh’s knowledge and appreciation of Japanese history and culture enabled lively and fascinating discussion through the day with great insight into the local points of interest. Hugh was very accomodating and even booked our evening restaurant for a lovely evening. A five star experience.
Hi Leigh It was my great pleasure sharing the day with you, Mark and Kelly. Thanks so much for the five star review! Best, Hugh
A wonderful day of sightseeing. Extremely informative. Lunch at a local restaurant was an added bonus something we certainly wouldn't have found without Hugh. Has certainly given us reasons to return as it made us wish we had been able to spend more time in Hiroshima.
Hugh was good at communicating prior to the tour so that we knew exactly what we would be seeing and also helped us sort out how to spend the afternoon of our arrival before our tour. Hugh is very friendly and knowledgeable, with an excellent command of Japanese. Our tour of Hiroshima was interesting and informative . The gardens Hugh took us to in the afternoon were just fabulous. He also recommended some places we should visit on the rest of our tour of Japan .
