Why don’t we spend an unforgettable time together in Hiroshima?
I spent most of my school years in Kure which used to be a flourishing naval port town in Hiroshima. After finishing an undergraduate degree in Japan, I went to Boston to study linguistics at a graduate school. I taught English for nearly 10 years in Japan. Some opportunities to work as a volunteer interpreter made me want more people to know about how beautifully Hiroshima was reconstructed from the ashes. Since 2019, I have been working as a tour guide mainly in Miyajima Island and Peace Memorial Park. The island and the park are not the only highlights in Hiroshima. There are more places to have fun here. For instance, you can enjoy the famous food stalls and the delicious curry and rice in Kure. I really want to enjoy them with my guests. I also love to learn about different cultures. Let’s chat and enjoy Hiroshima, its people, and its culture together!
【Naval Port】The townscape of Kure and Kure Bay where the world’s largest battleship “Yamato” was built. I love the contrast of the peaceful town and the enormous vessels.
【Navy curry and rice】Sailors in a submarine have had a habit of eating curry and rice every Friday in order to keep track of the days of the week. It’s not only delicious but also healthy and nutritious.
