As the sun sets, Hiroshima’s culinary scene beckons. With friendly locals and a highly walkable central dining and entertainment hub, there’s no better way to explore than with our Hiroshima night tour. Led by a bilingual guide, you’ll venture into eateries mostly known to locals, diving into a world of foodie delights.

Along the journey, our Hiroshima walking tour unveils a spectrum of cultural sights, all introduced in a lively, well-paced manner that will deepen your appreciation for Hiroshima.

With all food and beverages included, you’re free from the worry of unexpected costs, making your experience thoroughly enjoyable.

For culinary adventurers, we also offer engaging Food Tours in Kyoto and a Walking Food Tour in Osaka, each of which embraces the local flavors of our favorite neighborhoods. We take immense joy in introducing visitors to our local haunts. Come explore with us!

Enrich Your Japan Travel Experience with Our Hiroshima Guided Tour

Venturing into Hiroshima’s food scene solo is an option, but our Hiroshima guided tour promises a richer experience. Avoiding the tourist-trampled spots, we prefer unveiling the city’s hidden gastronomic gems in quaint streets or bustling local neighborhoods through our Hiroshima tour.

Every tour is a friendly, insightful adventure led by passionate local guides who call Hiroshima home. They’re not just guides, but your new local friends, illuminating the city’s stories and flavors in a way you’d miss out on if exploring alone.

You’ll learn, eat, and laugh so much more than if you wandered around aimlessly without our local insight.

If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact us. We’re always happy to help!

Trevor was an amazing guide and took into account my food allergies when ordering food for the whole group. He even gave me suggestions on where to go to buy peaches. I had been looking at various grocery stores throughout my travel and could not find any fresh ones. He pointed me in the right direction and I was able to find them. So thanks again Trevor.
Thanks Trevor

We had a fantastic evening with Trevor, he took us to izakaya that we never would have otherwise gone into, and selected food that we probably wouldn't have chosen, and it was all outstanding! Trevor is a really knowledgable and personable host, and he made the night both informative and fun. We'd highly recommend him and this tour to anyone visiting Hiroshima. It was a great way to start our time in the city.

We had a great time with Alex! Our adult son and I were looking for a way to explore non tourist restaurants and learn more about the city, and the tour was exactly what we were looking for! We stopped in three different small restaurants and felt like locals while meeting people and having wonderful food. Alex was a great guide and all around good guy. Highly recommended!

The tour guide Trevor was excellent and his local knowledge was really helpful. The weather was pouring with rain but this did not stop the fun and getting from place to place under cover. Trevor mixed in with us very well and made us feel like we were just one big party. The food was an experience and for all of our group was something very new with some of the dishes. Certainly well worth doing and would strongly recommend, thanks Trevor.

Levi was awesome! We almost stayed after the tour just to hang out, but I was falling asleep on my feet. We had a great time eating, drinking, discussing Japanese history, language, and culture. If you have any questions about what to see in the city or about something you already visited he probably knows! He was also very kind and changed to a different restaurant for the last one because my feet were killing me and many of the small bars are standing only. I really appreciated his willingness to alter the plans!

A great private tour where you eat great food in Hiroshima in great places. 3 hours isn't too long and perfect for a night out. Kevin knew a lot about the food and it is very interesting to hear about the local food. One place was pretty hard to get into because there was no reservation beforehand. We had to come back several times before we finally got in. It was worth the wait but I think that it would be more smooth if there was a reservation beforehand (with the other food tours we did there were always reservations to avoid that there is no room for us). We lost some valuable time due to that. Conclusion is that it was a great food tour overall!

Embark on a Cultural Adventure with Our Hiroshima Night Tour

Our Hiroshima tour is a delightful blend of cultural exploration and culinary indulgence. We kickstart the experience with a gentle stroll through a local neighborhood, immersing you in the cultural fabric of Hiroshima and whetting your appetite for the culinary adventure ahead.

The journey begins in Hiroshima’s charming covered shopping arcade, a thriving example of traditional shopping amidst the modern wave of malls and online retail. As we meander through this bustling area, we’ll eventually veer into a parallel street, where a more eclectic and atmospheric vibe awaits. Here, fashion takes a quirky turn, and eateries exude a unique charm.

We especially love escorting our guests to a beloved supermarket nestled in this backstreet area. In just a short span, you’ll get acquainted with quintessential Japanese meats and vegetables, unraveling the foundation of Japan’s rich culinary tradition. A fun little insight into distinguishing beer from other beverages is just one of the many enjoyable tidbits awaiting you!

Diving into Hiroshima’s Gastronomic Delights: A Foodie Tour

Having piqued your curiosity and appetite, we’ll wander to our first “tachinomi” (standing bar) of the night. More akin to a tapas bar than a pub, these vibrant social corners offer fresh, scrumptious fare amidst a lively local ambiance. We’ll ensure a hearty sampling of delectable offerings, whether seated or standing.

Ethical and Tailored Food Tours in Hiroshima

We staunchly adhere to ethical dining practices, steering clear of endangered species. Should you have any dietary preferences or restrictions – be it vegetarian, vegan, or specific dislikes, a heads-up in advance enables us to tailor the experience to your liking.

Our Hiroshima night tour is meticulously paced, with roughly 1.5 hours of exploration intertwined with an equal duration of hearty dining. 

This balanced itinerary ensures a leisurely pace devoid of a rushed eating spree.

Throughout the Hiroshima tour, we’ll grace three distinct eateries, each promising:

(1) A mouthwatering array of dishes;

(2) A complimentary alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice; and

(3) A hearty dose of local charm!

While the restaurant lineup might vary based on their operational hours, rest assured, our extensive local know-how ensures a rewarding dining experience under the adept guidance of your local connoisseur.

Unveiling Hiroshima’s Nightlife: A Hiroshima Tour with a Difference

With your palate satiated, we’ll traverse Hiroshima’s vibrant entertainment district. This stretch promises many intriguing sights, shedding light on modern Japanese nightlife. While it lacks anything lewd or perilous, the area offers a fascinating glimpse into the local social scene, enriching your Hiroshima  tour manifold. Your local guide’s insights transform this stroll into an enlightening escapade, vividly depicting Hiroshima’s night-time allure.

Itinerary for Our Hiroshima Tours

We’ll spend just a few minutes strolling this covered shopping street before veering off the well-beaten path to explore this area’s side street culture. We’re also excited to take you into a proper supermarket and explain some interesting things about Japanese food shopping and cooking! We’ll spend about 30 minutes when all’s said and done, so that means the food starts at around 7pm.

After the 30-minute stroll around town, we bet you’ll be ready for some food and drink! We’ve got a great place lined up for you. Superb quality with local preparations means great food! Plus, the atmosphere is modern and convivial. We’ll try a few different dishes here (we still have two more restaurants to tackle after this!), and invite you to enjoy a drink of your choice. Perhaps you’d like some guidance on sake (Japanese rice wine) or shochu (a distilled Japanese alcoholic beverage)?

Generally, our second restaurant isn’t too far away from the first. Expect all the same goodness as our first place, but with different styles of Japanese food. As with our first restaurant, we’ll also enjoy about 30 minutes here.

We promise it won’t be too wild, but our explainer on nightlife in a modern Japanese city is sure to entertain. There’s a whole world of bars and other sights to see! Figure about 30 minutes for this.

Even if you’re feeling pretty full, we hope you’ll power through as we enter our third restaurant. Again, you can expect different food and a different vibe. You can plan for about 30 minutes here.

Our Tour Guides

We've got around a dozen guides at your service. Here we showcase a few of our most active ones.


We think it's important that everyone who works for Pinpoint Traveler is an active guide too, even the owner. Kevin's been in Japan thirteen years, but spent the first ten in the corporate world. Now he shares his love for Japan outside the confines of the office.
Shoji Pinpoint Traveler Osaka Guide


Born in Japan, but moved to Canada when he was still quite young, Shoji is back and ready to share is passion for Japan with you. His main dominion is Osaka and on down to Koya-san and Wakayama, but he's such a popular guy that we often send him even further afield by request.
Mardi Pinpoint Traveler Osaka Guide


Mardi's our Kyoto guide-in-chief, and her love for the city is infectious. She's got an uncanny ability for giving people just the right amount of information while still ensuring the tour stays light and fun. Be it temples and shrines, gardens, or nightlife, Mardi's your gal.
Dan Pinpoint Traveler Osaka Guide


Dan is a Spaniard, so of course his Spanish is native level, but his English is fantastic as well. He's got a warm personality and consistently makes our guests feel like they've made a new friend within minutes of meeting him. He also knows Osaka and Kyoto like no one's business!
Levy Pinpoint Traveler Osaka Guide


With nearly twenty years in Osaka, Levy's got this place WIRED. He's a major samurai and history aficionado, and in addition to knowing all the top sights like a true pro, he knows Osaka's nightlife better than (dare we say it!) the vast majority of Japanese who call Osaka home. Levy's originally from Israel, and runs tours in Hebrew too.
Suzie Pinpoint Traveler Osaka Guide


Suzie is Japan born and raised, and we can't recommend her enough for tours in Tokyo and Yokohama. Our prior guests frequently say nicer things about Suzie than any of our own mothers have said about us! The consummate pro, she's not just got all the info, but also an uncanny knack for knowing what to show our guests.

Not profiled here are guides who speak Spanish (Kyoto, in addition to Dan in Osaka), French (Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo), and German (Kyoto and Tokyo).
