After taking a few photos and fighting through bad traffic on the city's street cars we found the strangest restaurant building I have ever been to. If you know Japanese food you likely know what okonomiyaki is. If not here is how wikipedia explains it (Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き, Okonomiyaki?) is a Japanese dish consisting of a pan-fried batter cake and various ingredients.
We walked into this strange building very hungry but not sure how to choose. The first couple of floors were very busy so we just kept climbing stairs to a less busy section until we saw one that looked appealing. I have heard that some foreigners, that now live in Hiroshima, attempt to eat at as many of these cafes as possible. After eating there for both lunch and dinner Akiko wanted to know if I thought Hiroshima or Osaka okonomiyaki was better. Back then I was married to her so I remember safely saying of course Osaka, but really I have no idea as I like both.
