What to Expect

Experience the essence of Japan with a gourmet food tour and immerse yourself in making your own Okonomiyaki, described as the Japanese ‘soul food’ and the culinary specialty of Hiroshima. Hiroshima is home to 1,600 Okonomiyaki shops and is known as the prime okonomiyaki city in Japan.


In this program, you will learn the basics of cooking the Okonomiyaki (savoury pancake) unique to Hiroshima, putting ingredients such as cabbage, tempura crisps, green onions, bean sprouts, porks, noodles and an egg in a layer on the teppan without mixing, topped with sauces and condiments. The sweetness of the cabbage perfectly matches the taste and the noodles would make you full just with a piece of Okonomiyaki. 


After cooking the Okonomiyaki, enjoy it with the sauce made by the Otafuku Sauce Co., a worldwide manufacturer of savoury Japanese condiments. You would be able to try 8 types of sauces at the showroom. The staff from the Otafuku Sauce Co. will teach you some tips to cook the Okonomiyaki. You will be able to learn the deep relations between the Hiroshima's recovery from the post-war and the Okonomiyaki.


You can choose the toppings of your Okonomiyaki and picj from four sauce flavours. You will also enjoy oysters, desserts, and three drinks you like (including craft beer only) while eating the Okonomiyaki. Okonomiyaki can be adapted for Muslim and Vegetarian visitors upon request.
