Based on reviews in Trip Advisor, we tried the Okonomimura food court on our recent visit to Hiroshima (it's also mentioned in Lonely Planet). We picked the fourth floor to try, turned right when we alighted, and checked out the stalls as we walked to the end of the hallway. We decided to try the last stall on the left... More

Floored by the idea ( 3 floors to be exact ) of visiting this place in Hiroshima’s downtown district of Shintenchi that is filled with stalls dedicated to serving okonomiyaki . We were recommended Atomu on the 4th floor ( ground being 1st floor ) but since all the signs were in Japanese we ended up at what I found... More

This building is located less than 5 minutes away from the Hondori Shopping street. I used photos of the building's front to help me track this place down. There are several floors, each selling variations of okonomiyaki, and the stall owners would acknowledge you to get you to eat at their stall. We got reeled into eating at one of... More

There's so much competition between the stalls at this place that standards are very high. Costs are also low as a result and you're guaranteed a good meal.

We took a taxi straight here from the train station. Cost about 700 yen -- and it was so worth any extra expense because we were dropped in front of the building. No getting lost for us! The okonomiyaki we tried were great, but I wish I hadn't gone with the first place we saw-- it just appeared to be... More

We tracked this place down after reading about it online; but we still managed to walk past the entrance a few times before working out how to get in (it's via a very inconspicuous lift at street level). There are three floors of small restaurants, all selling Hiroshima's signature okinomiyaki. Find a busy one serving lots of locals, and you... More

We were encouraged to try a okonomiyaki meal while in Hiroshima - and I'm glad we did. The Okonomimura is spread over three floors but we didn't get past the first. Settled for a lively place with the most customers and after a little explanation of our vegetarian needs, we were enjoying a very good value, tasty meal

Okonomiyaki are the thing in Hiroshima. Local specialty and what better place to try it than 3 floors packed with tiny restaurants making this goodness right before your very eyes. Great fun to see the cooking going on in front of you. All part of a mouthwatering journey to a perfect Okonomiyaki meal!

In my three days in Hiroshima, going to Okonomimura may have been the highlight. I'm not a big okonomiyaki fan, but I'd never had Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki before and wanted to try it. I walked in around 4PM and took the stairs to the 3rd floor. I think I was the only customer on the floor, and randomly picked a place... More

20+ stands all selling variations of the same dish - great and cheap food, and a bit of fun. Give it a go, and don't worry about picking the few stands that advertise spoken English - mix in with the locals, you won't regret it
