The Chugoku Regional Innovation Research Center (CRIRC) launched Hiroshima Optional Tours (HOT) in 2011 collaborating with the Hiroshima prefectural government as part of an effort to promote international tourism. Under this aegis, nationally licensed tour guides created some exciting new Hiroshima excursions. Since the end of the fixed-term collaboration with the prefecture, HOT has been steered by the CRIRC and licensed professional tour guides. The goal of HOT is to help international visitors to Hiroshima explore intriguing destinations off the beaten path as well as those familiar to all.
