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｀*)
The sign reads:

Hello! I’m Ryota Sato. But most people call me Ton.
I’m in charge of tour programs at Hiroshima Hostel EN.
I love football, hot spring and craft beer!
I’ll guide you to the sea and mountain areas of Hiroshima where you can experience the real Hiroshima like the locals do.
There are so many beautiful places to visit here!
Welcome to Hostel EN and let’s drink together!
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.

“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!”)
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!
