    Hiroshima Pref. Kureshi Hondori 4-10-1
    Chinraiken is a long-established restaurant built up from a lowly food stall after the war and said to be the first restaurant to serve the local Kure food, Kure-reimen (cold noodles). It’s a very popular restaurant widely frequented by tourists and local residents. During peak times there’ll often be a queue of people eagerly waiting outside. The soup together with their own special blend of sauce with the flavors of soy sauce, chili peppers, and sesame all based around a chicken broth has a perfect balance of sweetness, spiciness and sourness. The simple and rich flavor goes well with the made-to-order flat noodles and tender slices of roast pork. Try adding their original su-karashi (vinegar and mustard) seasoning, delicious! The nearest station is Kure Station.

    Hiroshima Onomichi-shi Tsuchido 1-12-11
    This ramen restaurant is located a five-minute walk from Onomichi Station and can be identified by its blue sign. The owner is dedicated to using ingredients for which the people who made them can easily be identified, and the restaurant in turn serves bowls of safe, healthy ramen made from these ingredients. The restaurant’s staple Onomichi Ramen is topped with crisp home-grown spring onions and is made with an addictive, exquisitely balanced meat and seafood broth. This broth also goes perfectly with the restaurant’s thin noodles, which are not usually seen in Onomichi ramen. For many, Onomichi ramen equals shoyu (soy sauce) ramen, but the restaurant’s simple yet flavorful Setouchi Shio (Salt) Ramen is also popular.

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.
