    Hiroshima Pref. Hiroshimashinakaku Yagembori 10-6
    A popular okonomiyaki savory pancake restaurant located in Yagembori, Naka Ward, Hiroshima City, Hiroshima Prefecture which sees lines of customers waiting outside its door day after day. The restaurant’s batter is made with high quality domestic flour and milk and without conventional dashi stock to ensure it does not obstruct the flavor of the sauce. Hassyou puts great effort into its okonomiyaki—the cabbage used is sourced from different locations depending on the season, for example, and Hiroshima noodles are used because they pick up sauce well. The most popular item on the menu, which almost all customers order, is the okonomiyaki soba niku tama—okonomiyaki with soba noodles, meat, and eggs. The restaurant’s scallops, thick-cut beef tongue, and other side dishes are also well-reviewed.

Hiroshima Areas

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.
