A Food Theme Park for a Hiroshima Favorite


Enjoy the ever-popular Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki in its place of origin


Each region of Japan has a unique food culture. Hiroshima’s claim to fame is okonomiyaki, a savory pancake-like dish filled with shredded veggies, meat, and—most importantly─the noodles that set it apart from other regional variants. An ideal spot for this is the Okonomimura building, a collection of restaurant stalls that put their own spin on the popular dish.



Wandering through the two floors of Okonomimura located in a seven-story building in downtown Hiroshima is a bit like exploring a culinary wonderland. Hear the sizzle of batter on the griddle. Smell the rich aroma of frying meat. Tuck in, and wash it down with a tall chilled glass of draft beer. Some stalls offer English menus, and most can cater to vegetarians.


It’s worth checking out all of the stalls, or perusing the Okonomimura website. Each vendor has something unique, from crunchy buckwheat noodles and cheese mochi to a homemade kimchi. To find your favorite, you'll want to come back time and again.
