Okonomiyaki and Oysters

Hiroshima is famous for its own style of okonomiyaki, a savory pancake layered with cabbage, meat, and other ingredients like noodles or fried egg. Hiroshima Bay cultivates more oysters than anywhere else in Japan, producing some of the largest oysters you’ll see anywhere and served in a variety of ways. Miyajima is also famous for its oysters and even celebrates an oyster festival in early February.

Hiroshima is a modern city with a long history, evident at landmarks like Hiroshima Castle and Shukkei-en Garden. It's also famous for its oysters and as a gateway to nearby Miyajima.
