The Chugoku region consists of 5 prefectures: Hiroshima – home to two World Heritage Sites, the Atomic Bomb Dome and Miyajima’s Itsukushima Shrine, Okayama, Yamaguchi, Tottori, and Shimane.Hiroshima has other sightseeing spots like Onomichi, Tomonoura – the town that became the setting of a Ghibli film, and the rabbit island, Okunoshima. From the Shimanami Sea Route in Onomichi, you can get to Shikoku by going past the various islands on the Seto Inland Sea. Going by car is the most convenient, but it’s recommended to bike there on certain seasons. There are rental bikes that even overseas tourists can use to enjoy the trip! One dish that you’ve got to try is the Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, which is called “Hiroshima-yaki”! Other iconic Hiroshima foods are Miyajima’s specialty anago meshi and momiji manju.
