We sincerely hope you’ll enjoy these recommendations as much as we do. Please don’t forget to repost on Live2Leave when you follow an advice from a member of the community!



– Tasty Lunches –

Okonomi-mura Live2Leave



“This is the best place to try Hiroshima style Okonomiyaki! There’s too many choices in this block filled with okonomiyaki restaurants but wherever you go, it’s gonna be delicious!”

Daiwa Sushi Live2Leave

Daiwa Sushi


“Once you’ve seen the fish market make your way out back behind all the trucks and storage areas to a little row of restaurants. There will be a queue but it’s worth it. Sushi Dai is the best of the bunch (sadly it was closed by the time we arrived) but Daiwa Sushi is a good second.”

“6 seater sushi restaurant which is DIVINE. The omakase menu is in a sushi sho style, lots of inventive pieces that I didn’t have elsewhere. The chef speaks English so talks you through the menu. Highly recommend.”
