"Discover the Depths of Setouchi with me as your Best Hiroshima Friend!"

I've explored approximately 50 countries from their world heritage sites to even local schools, using local public transportation. I have experienced that the information and knowledge shared by locals made the landscapes and world heritage sites before me more vibrant and more beautiful. And interaction with local people have become treasures in my life.

Now, it's my turn!
