Need to know what to eat in Hiroshima? Hiroshima style okonomiyaki and spicy dipping ramen or tsukemen are the foods to try!

We try Hiroshima style okonomiyaki where they layer the different ingredients onto the grill to create this delcious savoury pancake at Tekka, a local restaurant in Hiroshima.

Okonomiyaki was a dish born out of the war. After the atomic bomb hit all the city's restaurants were flattened and so people set up makeshift grills and started cooking together all the different scraps they had- this eventually evolved into the dish we know and love today!

Okonomiyaki is one dish you MUST eat when in Hiroshima!

Our second stop is for spicy dipping ramen or tsukemen at Bakudanya. Sheena samples the cold version and Thomas the hot version. Bakudanya offers spice levels from 1 to 100! Another must eat when in Hiroshima!

We hope we've inspired you to eat and explore like a traveler, not a tourist.

If you love Sushi, obviously the best place in the world to get some is in Japan. So if you ever have the chance to visit Tokyo, you have to try this place! My #1 Sushi restaurant is about 2 hours away near Mt. Fuji, but this place is surely taking #2 as the Best Sushi I ever ate.

Japan Trip: Local Delicacy Famous All Over Japan and More!! Okonomiyaki, Hiroshima 013

Japan Trip: Local Delicacy Famous All Over Japan and More!! Okonomiyaki, Hiroshima 013 Moochan

Visitors to Hiroshima are strongly encouraged to try Hiroshima local delicacy, okonomiyaki.

Sometimes referred to as a Japanese pancake, okonomiyaki consists of meat, egg, cabbage and noodles (soba or udon) layered into a flour based batter, grilled on a large, heated steel plate. Though the contents vary, the meat used is usually pork, though diners may opt for a seafood version which uses shrimp, squid, octopus or oyster, or a combination of the previously mentioned seafood. Additional toppings of chopped green onions, cheese, corn, seafood, etc., can be added for a nominal fee. After the okonomiyaki is grilled on the steel plate, it is garnished with okonomiyaki sauce, finely grated seaweed, and bonito flakes. There are restaurants which add mayonnaise as well.

There are variations of okonomiyaki throughout Japan, though Hiroshima and Kansai (Osaka) okonomiyaki are the most famous. Whereas Kansai okonomiyaki is more simple, Hiroshima okonomiyaki is more filling as it uses more cabbage (about 3 times the amount of its Kansai counterpart) and has noodles included in the okonomiyaki (Kansai okonomiyaki does not contain noodles).

Okonomiyaki is available throughout Hiroshima prefecture, though there is a larger concentration of okonomiyaki stores near Hiroshima station and in the downtown area. Behind Parco Department Store is Okonomiyaki Mura, a building containing only Okonomiyaki food stalls. As each okonomiyaki stall is independent, the contents, price and taste of okonomiyaki vary from stall to stall.

In most cases, the chef of the okonomiyaki establishment will prepare the okonomiyaki in a location where diners can observe. Diners wishing to watch the cooking process can opt to try this Hiroshima local delicacy at a food stall (as the diners will sit around the heated large steel plate) or at the counter of a restaurant. However, as the steel plate does emit a large amount of heat, it is quite hot near the cooking steeled plate, so please be careful.

Once the okonomiyaki is prepared, the way it is served varies according to the restaurant. There are stores which will serve its patrons okonomiyaki on a heated plate, and there are others, which will bring their diners a small skillet containing the warm okonomiyaki. And yet, there are places where diners can eat their okonomiyaki off the large, heated steel plate. Diners have the choice of eating their okonomiyaki with chopsticks or a steel spatula called a hira. Similar to a steel spoon, the hira will preserve the heat the okonomiyaki, making okonomiyaki a great meal during cool/cold weather. Diners opting to eat okonomiyaki with a hira, please be cautious not to burn the tongue!

A popular food, with healthy vegetables and very reasonable price-wise, visitors to Hiroshima will surely have their stomachs and hearts warmed with this Hiroshima soul food.

Hiroshima Day 1

Hey guys we are Kris and Mj and this is our trip around Japan


Hiroshima today is a city transformed, but it's known for harrowing history. The Peace Memorial Park, Atomic Bomb Dome and Peace Memorial Museum are very important for everybody to experience… but I didn’t expect to find so much fun on my city tour.

From tasty Okonomiyaki to craft breweries and rooftop bars. Hiroshima in 2019 is a really vibrant, modern place. But it also owns it’s history, presented best by the story of Sadako Sasaki.

This is my Hiroshima travel video, that I hope captures my thoughts and feelings of the place.

Next Series starts in Bangkok, Thailand:

Japan Series Playlist:


Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum - 0:40
Somewhere that everyone should visit in their lifetime. A poignant reflection on the bomb blast through interactive exits and artefacts.

Atomic Bomb Dome (Genbaku Dome) - 1:00
The former Hiroshima Prefectural Industrial Promotion Hall is one of the few ruins left standing from the blast. It is now a centrepiece of the peace park and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site

Peace Memorial Park - 1:19
A beautiful place to visit, dedicated to the victims of the bomb. Very peaceful with several museums, memorials and art installations.

Hiroshima Trams - 1:37
The vintage trams have been a feature of the city since long before the bombing. They are still the best way to get around the city.

Orizuru Tower Hiroshima - 1:43
The best rooftop bar and viewpoint I visited in Japan, located right next to the Atomic Bomb Dome. A beautiful and modern design with several floors and interactive exhibits. It’s a great place to come with kids to learn about the history and a great spot to drink and unwind. You can also get down the building through a series of slides - lots of fun! There is a ¥1000 JPY entrance fee for tourists.

Okonomoyaki - 1:47
A savoury Japanese pancake and a native speciality dish of Hiroshima. Nagataya is a great restaurant to try it for the first time, but get there early - there’s always a queue!

Miyajima Ferry - 2:07
¥180 JPY for a one way trip, there is also a dedicated JR Line Ferry for anybody with a rail pass.

Itsukushima Shrine - 2:15
One of the most famous Torii gates/shrines in Japan. Partially submerged by water at high tide. You can view it from the land or take a boat through it.

Miyajima Brewery - 2:33
A great little stop for craft beer lovers on the Main Street on Miyajima island.

Hiroshima Carps - 2:35
The loudest and proudest baseball fans in the country! They play at the Mazda Zoom-Zoom Stadium. You can buy tickets at the stadium box office or from 711, Family Mart and Lawson.

Hiroshima Arcades - 2:48
There are a couple of Taito Stations in the city, which are good fun as always!

Paper Crane Memorial - 4:12
At the Hiroshima Orizuru Tower, you can make your own paper cranes to drop into the memorial on the 10th floor.

Hey! This is the seventh video of many documenting my trip to JAPAN! All shot on a GoPro Hero5.

We start out the night by arriving in Hiroshima and finding a place to eat. The next day we make our way over to the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum.

I learned a lot about the tragedy that took place so many years ago and was humbled seeing Hiroshima rebuilt from something so devastating. From first glances, the city was breath-taking, but learning its history I appreciated its beauty even more. I believe in Peace among nations, and I'm glad this museum represents that.

After the museum we went for lunch at a restaurant which specializes in okonomiyaki, Nagata-ya, where I was introduced to the cuisine. We then walked around Hiroshima, viewing the Genbaku Dome and the Children's Peace Monument. We later found ourselves ending the day at the Hiroshima Castle. (I do acknowledge the high amount of shots of the water. Hiroshima is beautiful and I couldn't help it)


I'm new to filming. New to editing. And new to Japan. Please enjoy!

A walk on Hiroshima's streets

Hiroshima (広島市 Hiroshima-shi) is the capital of Hiroshima Prefecture, and the largest city in the Chūgoku region of western Honshu, the largest island of Japan. It became best known as the first city in history to be destroyed by a nuclear weapon when the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped an atomic bomb on it at 8:15 A.M. on August 6, 1945, near the end of World War II.
