Leading global hospitality company, Hilton, announced the opening of Hilton Hiroshima, marking Hilton’s first flagship branded hotel in Hiroshima. Under an agreement with Fujimicho Development G.K., a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) set up by Setouchi Brand Corporation, Hilton Hiroshima is managed by Hilton.

Conveniently situated in the center of Hiroshima city, the hotel is within a 10minute drive from Hiroshima Station and is within walking distance of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Atomic Bomb Dome, and Peace Memorial Park which attract more than 1.7 million visitors per year1. The hotel also offers easy access to major dining, shopping and sightseeing spots such as the Hiroshima Castle and Itsukushima Shrine with its famous floating torii gate.

“We are delighted to announce the opening of Hilton Hiroshima as the latest addition to Hilton’s flagship brand, in the centre of the Chugoku and Shikoku region,” said Timothy Soper, area vice president, head of Japan, Korea, and Micronesia, Hilton. “With Hilton’s extensive experience in Japan, we are incredibly honoured to partner with Setouchi Brand Corporation to set a benchmark for hospitality in the region.

international conferences and exhibitions. With Japan set to host the G7 summit in Hiroshima next year, we look forward to welcoming both international and domestic guests with Hilton’s signature hospitality.”

Shin Isaka, chief executive officer, Setouchi Brand Corporation, said, “Today we are pleased to commence operations of the first Hilton hotel in Hiroshima. As an international city of peace, there is a strong demand for Hiroshima to host peace-related academic conferences and international meetings. The opening of Hilton Hiroshima with extensive conference facilities in the city center near Peace Boulevard has been a long-held dream, and this would not have been possible without theconfidence and support our partners, such as Hilton, have placed in us. We look forward to warmly welcoming guests from around the world to this new landmark, which will offer a unique experience of the cuisine, history, and culture of Hiroshima including the Seto Inland Sea with the Tatobi (the beauty of multiple islands).”

The newly built 420-room Hilton Hiroshima features one of the largest convention facilities in the region, and the hotel can accommodate international MICE events of more than 1,000 people with 19 banquet and meeting rooms with the latest LED technology and state-of-the-art AV equipment. Additional hotel facilities include four restaurants, an executive lounge, a wedding chapel, a fitness center, an indoor pool, and sauna. Guests can also relax at the hotel spa, Spa by L’OCCITANE, which is the first L’OCCITANE spa to open in the region.

Hilton Hiroshima’s guest rooms, including suites, are located on the 7th through 22nd floor. The room décor pays homage to the culture and natural surroundings of the region, with blue accents that reflect the Seto Inland Sea, art featuring graphic designs of Japanese maple tree, “Momiji” and amenities such as Bizen porcelain teacups which are inspired by the traditional craftsmanship of the region. The hotel overlooks the vibrant cityscape of Hiroshima, with views of the Seto Inland Sea and beautiful mountains in the distance, allowing guests to experience the charm of Hiroshima in all seasons.

Alexandra Jaritz, senior vice president, brand management, Asia Pacific, Hilton, said, “For over a century, Hilton Hotels & Resorts has been a beacon of hospitality in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations, and we are delighted to debut the brand’s 600th hotel in the heart of Hiroshima.
