The bustling downtown area is called Hondori, named after the pedestrian-only arcade shopping street that symbolizes the city. This shopping street is lined with clothing stores representing Japan and countries around the world. At night, the neon lights of izakaya (Japanese pubs) and pubs come on all at once. Ramen specialty stores and sushi restaurants with counter seating are open until midnight. Nearby, Okonomimura is a collection of restaurants specializing in Hiroshima’s special okonomiyaki.
