    Hiroshima Pref. Onomichishi Tsuchidou 2-9-26
    This ramen shop is located in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture. It is famous for its Onomichi ramen, notable for its flat-cut aged fresh noodles and a broth subtly flavored with small fry. Equipped with both counter and table seating, the restaurant is visited by many ramen lovers. Lines often form around lunchtime.

    We tried the special ramen with thick slices of pork and it was delicious. The restaurant from outside does not look very appealing but do not be fooled by the appearance!

    Hiroshima Pref. Onomichishi Kuriharachou 6023-5
    This ramen shop in Onomichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture is notable for their light soy sauce-derived flavor of their secret soup. Since its founding, the restaurant exclusively used spring water from Onomichi, which has the same mineral content as that from Mt. Daisen (Tottori Prefecture), to make its soup. Known as Onomichi ramen, this style of ramen soup made with pork bones, and chicken carcasses, vegetables, kombu kelp, and other ingredients is quickly becoming a popular regional ramen.

    We stopped at Tonchinkan on our way to Hiroshima, as recommended by a friend from Onomichi. They serve Onomichi Ramen, famous for its soup made of soy sauce and pork fat. The restaurant has three...

    Hiroshima Pref. Onomichishi Tsuchidou 1-6-22
    Founded in 1945, Ramen Shop Miyachi is a well-established chuka soba (Chinese buckwheat) shop in Onomichi. Tucked away in a narrow alley near the shopping center, it features specialties like its “tempura chuka” and “curry chuka” which you can only find here. The tempura chuka offers exquisite taste, with its perfectly fried shrimp over ultra-thin noodles. 10 minutes on foot from JR Onomichi Station.

    It was a great time. We enjoyed a very delicate and tasty ramen in a this small place at launch. We arrived early but find some people waiting. Very very recommended.

    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.

    美味しいお店や名物が意外に多い呉の街、まあ、高が冷麺だろうからと、3度目の食べ歩きで初めて訪ねました。土曜日のランチタイム、真冬ですが、やはり行列、2列に折り重なっていました。回転は悪くないですが、そこそこ待ちました。 呉冷麺(小=普通盛)+土日祭限定定食(ちまきが2個付き+200円)を頂きました。見た目はまあ普通の冷やし中華なのですが、食べてみると、こしのある平打ち麺の食感と、甘さにピリ辛さが加...

    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.

    Best Ramen we have had in our time in Japan Well priced No English menus but staff were friendly and there were pictures

Guests should stir the sauce more than 20 times before eating, then smother the specially prepared medium-thin noodles with the other ingredients into the sauce and eat.

    This ramen restaurant aims to be both delicious and healthy. Located a 10-minute walk from Yokogawa Station, the restaurant takes pride in making bowls of safe, healthy ramen.

Highly popular with women, many days it’s not unusual to find a line of customers waiting in front of the door before the restaurant even opens.
  • Menya Motonari

    Hiroshima Hiroshima-shi Naka-ku Funairihonmachi 12-21
    This ramen restaurant is located a one-minute walk from Funairi-hon-machi streetcar stop on the Hiroshima Electric Railway. Identifiable by its red canvas awning, the restaurant serves “neo Hiroshima ramen” made with a tonkotsu pork bone and soy sauce broth. The vaunted standard Motonari Ramen is an exquisite dish featuring medium-thick straight noodles ordered specially from the local Harada Seimen noodle company; an aromatic oil also enhances the ramen’s flavor.

The restaurant’s expansive menu also includes choices such as the Musashi Ramen, which features straight, fat noodles in a meat and seafood broth; and the Shoyu Tonkotsu Chuka Soba, a traditional Japanese chuka soba-style ramen with a pork bone and soy sauce broth.

    尾道をサイクリングで訪れ、ふらっと入ってみた。店内は広く、二人掛けと四人掛けのテーブルのみでカウンターはない。一人客でも、お好きなお席へと案内してくれる。ラーメンと牡蠣フライ、御飯がセットになった日替わり定食が980円。御飯大盛りでも値段が同じなのが有り難い。ラーメンは醤油味に魚粉が入ったような感じ。自転車を置く場所がないので、サイクリストの方は近所に置いていきましょう。

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.
