The Spring 2016 edition of the GetHiroshima Mag is out and about now. With this, our 9th issue, we embark on the 3rd year of our mission to give both the intrepid sojourner and the adventurous residents a head start in getting under the skin of our hometown.
It’s great to see that we have more writers contributing to this issue than any so far. If you would like to join our growing team of contributors, or if you have any comments on how we are doing and how we can improve, please contact us at [email protected]. We would love to hear from you.
In this issue, as well as our regular looks at the region’s festivals and the hanami cherry blossom season, Matt Jungblut explores the city’s growing craft beer scene, we talk to Hiroshima’s bohemian queen Goto Izumi and local residents share some of their favorite spots in which to eat, drink, sing and canoodle. We also look further afield because as much we love this city, there is so much good stuff around the region. The Setouchi Art Triennale is a year-long festival of art and culture spread over 12 Inland Sea islands and Onan is a hidden rural gem in the middle of the Chugoku mountains across the border in Shimane Prefecture. Oh, and before you go, don’t forget to check out Matt’s Moment at the back of the mag; someone has clearly been smoking the shirako over the winter.
