Okonomimura - A Food Theme Park for a Hiroshima Favorite

Enjoy the ever-popular Hiroshima-style Okonomiyaki at its place of origin

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

This outpost for all things Okonomiyaki is located on the second to fourth floors of a seven-floor structure in the center of downtown Hiroshima. A number of the stalls offer English menus, and most can cater to vegetarian requests.

It’s worth wandering all of the stalls before making a choice, or perusing the Okonomimura website prior to arrival. Each stall has something unique about their offerings, from crunchy buckwheat noodles and cheese mochi to a homemade kimchi. To truly determine your favorite variety, you'll want to come back time and again!
