Unfortunately there will not be a tour in 2018, but we hope to offer one in the very near future.

Our 2013 and 2017 tours were a great success with several participants actually joining us for both occasions.

Hyogo Cultural Centre tours are unique in that we incorporate many “hands-on” activities, two nights’ homestay, and other special visits that you would not normally be able to access as a general tourist.  Hyogo Cultural Centre is not a travel business, but a non-profit organisation so the tours are extremely cost effective and include flights, domestic transportation, accommodation, entrance fees, workshops, and most meals.  The last two tours have been lead by Melissa Luyke, Deputy Director.


We’re about to head off on tour.  Everyone is getting excited!!

Our tour will take off on Sunday, November 5 and return to Perth on Sunday, November 19.  We will take in the best of Hyogo, Hiroshima and the Kansai region.
