Welcome to Hiroshima hostel EN! Come meet our friendly staff and join us for a drink or a chat.
We want to meet, you!
“Hello, my name is Ko” is probably about the only English words you’ll here Ko say. But even though he doesn’t speak English it’s always a fun time with the owner (or ‘mayor’ as he rather likes to be called) of EN.
If you’re looking for a connection in Japan, he’s the person to go to! He spend 3 years on a bicycle going across Japan and met a lot of interesting people along the way. He build EN so other people too can connect with each other (*´ω｀*)
Hello, this is Tame.
I’m from Yokogawa area, but I have been aware of the new charm of the day.
I lived in Melbourne until April 2017, but my English isn’t good enough.
When you talk to me,you should use English for my practice.haha
One of my dream is to be a Japanese language teacher for foreign people.
I’ like to spread Japanese and Japanese culture.
If you find me who am tired, please give me a beer.
After that I’ ll get my health back!
Hope see you soon.
Hi, I’m Sven! I’m from the Netherlands, but for some reason I feel really at home in Japan (^o^;
For that reason I started learning Japanese and when I came to Hiroshima for the first time I fell in love with the area and the local baseball team ‘Hiroshima Toyo Carp’! They have the best fans and it’s always a blast!
I also love the Japanese nature, countryside, onsen, adventuring and I really want to show those sides of Hiroshima to more people!
I can help you out if you don’t understand Japanese but want to chat with the locals!
So let’s get a drink together and do some karaoke afterwards, haha!
Nozomi Taniguchi (Non)
“I don’t know English.. HUG ME!!”
Maybe one of the most forward Japanese persons you’ll meet. If your a girl, be prepared to get hugged, haha (^o^;
Non-chan is our expert on alcohol, especially Japanese sake. If you’re new to sake or looking for a recommendation, ask her for her special 3 cup sake tasting! “Kanpai!” (Or as we say at EN, “Iyasaka!”)
