Some time ago I went to Hiroshima over the weekend with a friend of mine. We stayed in a lovely Japanese inn, had some fantastic food and did lots of other stuff.
At the train station in Kyoto I was astonished to see that the Shinkansen, the ultrafast bullet train, leaves for Tokyo every 5 min or so. Here, missing your train really loses its meaning.
Above you see the lovely inn we stayed in.
One of the dishes that Hiroshima is famous for is Okonomiyaki. It is typically described as a Japanese pancake but that doesn’t really give you an understanding. Maybe a comparison to a tortilla is more apt. On a steel hot plate the chef grills cabbage, noodles, meats, and seafood, and combines them with some pancake batter into a package of delicious. The whole thing is rounded off with lots a Worcestershire Sauce and whatever else you choose. I chose spring onions.
