Setouchi Information Center

About Setouchi Information Center

Setouchi Information Center provides tourist information for international visitors to Hiroshima by bilingual staff who are always available. In addition to providing information on Hiroshima Prefecture, the center also 1) offers pamphlets in international languages for the seven prefectures of the Setouchi region (Hyogo, Okayama, Hiroshima, Yamaguchi, Tokushima, Kagawa, and Ehime Prefectures); 2) exhibit craft items, novelty goods, and souvenirs from each area of the Setouchi region; and 3) broadcast images and media of the Setouchi region.

As the information center is located downtown, we believe that we can reach a significant number of visitors, including those wishing to exchange money. We would like to be known as the place where a substantial and rich amount of tourist information may be obtained; to that end, we cooperate with the seven prefectures of the Setouchi area as well as regional business people and other significant persons.

By having overseas visitors take tourist information directly and see information for themselves, they are more likely to realize the charms of the Setouchi region; our aim is to extend the length of visitors’ stays, increase the numbers of overnight stays in the region, and promote re-visits by providing information that makes international visitors want to further explore Hiroshima City as well as the entire the Setouchi region.

The Setouchi Brand Corporation, Inc. established by the Setouchi DMO operates the “Setouchi Information Center @ HIROSHIMA BANK”, a tourist information center for international visitors that is located on the first floor of the Hatchobori Branch of Hiroshima Bank Ltd.

In the future also, Hiroshima Bank Ltd, Setouchi Brand Corporation Inc., and Setouchi Tourism Authority will continue to work to tourism-related businesses to promote regional development within the Setouchi region.

 

 当案内所では、広島に来られた外国人観光客に向け、常駐するバイリンガルスタッフによる広島県内の観光案内をはじめ、①瀬戸内7県(兵庫県、岡山県、広島県、山口県、徳島県、香川県、愛媛県)から集めた外国語パンフレットの設置と案内、②瀬戸内各地の工芸品や雑貨、お土産品の店内展示、③瀬戸内の映像放映を行っています。

 広島市の中心部に位置していることから、両替に訪れた外国人観光客をはじめ、多くの方々にお立ち寄りいただけるものと考えており、瀬戸内7県や事業者等と連携しながら、瀬戸内の様々な観光情報が入手できる場として、提供情報の充実を図ります。

 外国人観光客の皆さまが、観光情報を直接手に取り、目にすることで、「せとうち」の魅力を実感していただくと共に、広島市内のみならず瀬戸内各地を周遊していただくことで、地域での滞在時間の延長、宿泊日数の増加、再訪意向の向上を目指します。
