    This well established ‘fried cake’, or donut, shop on Nakadori Street, Kure City, Hiroshima Prefecture was founded in 1947. The donuts, fashioned after those made by previous generations of cake makers who learned the trade from an American baker and gained experience in famous cake shops and in Shanghai both before and during the war, are a simple deep fried bun loved for years by the locals.

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
