Welcome to Hiroshima! This harmonious prefecture is one of the three prefectures of Japan with more than one UNESCO World Heritage site. Located in the southwestern part of Japan’s Honshu, Hiroshima is best known for its gently-sloping mountains, automobile industry, and tragic history. In August 1945, Hiroshima City was destroyed in an instant with the dropping of the atomic bomb. Neighboring cities also suffered damage as a result of the war. Through the efforts of Hiroshima’s citizens, the region made an impressive recovery and continues to develop as a center of government, economics, and culture in the Chugoku-Shikoku Region.


Hiroshima prefecture can be roughly divided into four areas – Aki in the southwest, Bingo in the southeast, Geihoku in the northwest, and Bihoku in the northeast. Each area has its own distinct local cultures, food, and customs, making Hiroshima Prefecture a varied and exciting destination for visitors.

Different regions have their own traditional recipes and agricultural farming system. Many of the regional dishes can only be tasted in the original area they came from.

Hiroshima Okonomiyaki

Hiroshima okonomiyaki is distinguished from other regional styles by its thin batter base, upon which a generous amount of cabbage is built. The composition of a classic Hiroshima Okonomiyaki (bottom-top) is thin layer batter, cabbage, bean sprouts, spring onions, pork belly, noodles, eggs. Popular toppings include oysters, squid, and cheese. The dish is completed with bonito flakes, green laver, and okonomiyaki sauce.

Oyster Dishes

Hiroshima Prefecture accounts for approximately 60-70% of Japan’s oyster production. Hiroshima oysters are prized for their rich taste and larger-than-average size. Over centuries, a variety of local recipes have evolved in which oysters are grilled, deep-fried, or simmered in hot pots. They can also be eaten raw with soy sauce or dip it in ponzu.
