【DETAILS】
Let’s travel around Hiroshima City Centre via SUP. This particular vehicle requires visitors to stand up and row across the water, offering a wide field of vision and an eloquent sense of tranquillity exclusive to the city. The width of the riverbank in parallel with the gentle water current together makes Hiroshima an excellent place to tour via SUP. The city, home to 6 rivers, prides itself on housing one of the most cultivated stairways (that descend down to the riverbanks) out of the 350 in Japan, and is said to be one of the few cities that satisfy such customs in the world.

In following this plan, you will also be able to observe the Atomic Bomb Dome that can only be seen from standing up on SUP. Here you can feel the city’s delicate sense of history and peace while crossing the waters and the beautiful natural environment. 

Alongside the Atomic Bomb Dome, an annual event is held along the river in memory of those who fell victim to the war, inviting local residents and visitors to set adrift lanterns on the water and wish for unity. In recovering from the damage inflicted, the careful cultivation of green vegetation and the gentle water current in Hiroshima symbolizes peace, sending out messages of truce and hope around the world. It is believed that touring around the waters of contemporary Hiroshima via SUP is a special opportunity to experience the city’s sense of amity. Today the green vegetation along the Hiroshima Channel benefits from the finest maintenance, transforming the land into a public park that promotes a healthy way of life for local residents. Meanwhile the award-winning masonry along the riverbank was built to complement the surrounding environment, shining a light to the enormous apartment building in passage, which was designed (by a world-famous architect) to resemble a city itself. 

Here you can gain hands-on experience, taking SUP lessons led by an experienced, qualified instructor, who will pair you up with a suitable partner in advance. Beginners can therefore enjoy the tour via SUP and consider the river and city streets as a playground. You can experience the quiet, stress-free streets that are vehicle-and-traffic-light-free.
