Why Moe Recommends This Tour

Tips and recommendations by our official guides

You might be surprised by the abundance of izakaya (Japanese pubs) in Hiroshima's drinking districts. To guide you to the best spots, I've curated this tour, taking you to places known and cherished by locals, ensuring a unique experience! With our friendly local guide by your side, you'll discover authentic izakaya gems in Hiroshima.

The Nagarekawa area boasts a plethora of delectable izakaya dishes, including Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, horumon tempura, oysters, and more! And for those with dietary preferences or restrictions, fear not—most establishments offer vegetarian options. Simply inform your guide about any allergies or dietary needs, and they'll ensure a suitable selection for you.

Navigating an izakaya in Japan, especially for first-timers, might seem daunting due to unfamiliar customs or menu items. However, our knowledgeable guide will demystify the experience, explaining nuances, and sharing local tales. Feel free to engage with them, ask questions about Japan, and enjoy a chat over drinks—it's akin to spending time with old friends.

Hiroshima's locals exude warmth and friendliness, especially during evening outings. So, let's raise a glass (or several) with them!

Our expert guide will introduce you to hidden spots and experiences that might elude solo travelers. Dive deep into Hiroshima's nightlife and savor it like a true local.

Moreover, as this is a small-group food tour, you're guaranteed an intimate and memorable evening, reminiscent of outings with close friends. (For reassurance, check out our reviews on TripAdvisor!)

Whether you're a solo traveler, with friends, or a couple, all are warmly welcomed!

Start this local food tour with a bang as a chef cooks your very own Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki in front of you.

Our friendly local guide will be waiting for you near the GUCCI advertisement at Fukuya, close to Hacchobori station. Look for them holding a sign that reads "Magical Trip"—they'll be easy to spot! Once you meet up, the guide will lead you to a local izakaya renowned for its Okonomiyaki. As you settle in, quench your thirst with a traditional Japanese beverage while watching the chef prepare your Okonomiyaki (a savory Japanese pancake) right on the flat iron grill at your table!
