The name Hiroshima is synonymous with the world's first dropping of an atomic bomb. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Hiroshima Peace Museum is a reminder of the horrors of this event and are places anyone should visit. The floating red torii gates of Itsukushima Shrine at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Miyajima can also be found in Hiroshima Prefecture. Okonomiyaki here is not to be missed. Different to the Osaka version, this local soul food consists of a cooked thin dough, with cabbage, pork, soba noodles and egg stacked on top of each other.
