Marukin Honpo specializes in steamed buns and is located on the Omotesando shopping street in Miyajima. The shop sells three kinds of steamed buns, including the popular “Hiroshima Beef Bun,” made using the finest Hiroshima beef. A number of steamers are lined up on the counter in the store, so you can enjoy freshly steamed buns at any time. Purchased steamed buns can be eaten sitting on the benches at the eaves of the store, or they can be eaten on the go.
