The World Friendship Centre is wonderful. A home away from home run by a lovely American couple - Zina and Richard. Nothing was too much trouble. They even prepared us a take away breakfast for our early morning trip to Tokyo. You can meet fellow travellers, hear about an A-bomb victim's first hand experiences and have a personalised tour of... More

We stayed at WFC on a friend's recommendation and were further encouraged by reviews her on Tripadvisor. It is run by a lovely American couple, Richard and Xinia. They were very welcoming and hospitable, giving us a history of the Centre and some background information on the bombing. As well as looking after guests they run English and Spanish classes...

World Friendship Center is a home away from home for me. After five years of research in Hiroshima, I can't wait to go back. The directors of the center are volunteers from the United States and they make it their priority to look after their guests with a kind of respect, care and attention that is hard to find. The...

Run by a really friendly American couple, this place provides a unique guesthouse experience that is more like staying at a relatives than anything else. Convenient for the Peace Park and near a tram line that goes to the train station. The mandatory 8am breakfast is maybe a tad much if you've been travelling the day before. Great family run... More

Although I live in Japan, I came back to the WFC for two weeks in between moving from my old apartment into a new one. Of course, the second time was even more enjoyable as Richard and Xinia have become my 'family.' You could not ask for better hosts and their stories and endless enthusiasm for life in Japan is...

We booked one night in the World Friendship Centre after reading reviews on here. They were all true. The directions provided from Hiroshima Station by the Street Car were perfect and we were able to follow them easily. The warmth of Richard and Xinia's welcome was genuine and we felt at home straight away. They had printed off maps for... More

We were a group of six - 4 adults and 2 children - staying during Golden Week, the busiest travel time in Japan. We stayed in the annex, which was perfect for us. The rooms were cozy and very clean, the breakfast was great, and the location was just what we wanted - a 10 minute walk from the Peace... More

I couldn't say more positive things about WFC: Xinia and Richard were excellent hosts and made quite an impression. They organized a tour through the Piece Memorial park and helped me out with their extensive knowledge. I couldn't have asked for more: If you're sick of hotels or hostels (like I was), this place is the PERFECT accomodation for Hiroshima!... More
