If you are in Tokyo but have a craving for Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, Kurumi is the place to go! Here is more on this super popular okonomiyaki restaurant of Tokyo.

Feel free to follow favy!


Kurumi is a Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki restaurant in the Kagurazaka neighborhood of Shinjuku in Tokyo. The style in question basically layers the ingredients and adds some noodles and a fried egg to the recipe. It is not so commonly found in Tokyo, so this joint is a gem for the many Tokyo fans of that style.
The popular neighborhood shop has a really friendly atmosphere. A large counter surrounds the steel plate where the chefs prepare your okonomiyaki before you. In many restaurants, you mix up and cook the dish yourself. It can be quite tricky to get it right at first so its interesting to see real experts doing it!


There are about 10 different sorts of Okonomiyaki to choose from ranging in price from just 800 to 1300 yen. The base ingredients in each of them are pork, eggs, cabbage and noodles. For the noodles, you get to choose either soba (buckwheat) or udon (wheat). The okonomiyaki is brushed with a sweet and sour sauce and sprinkled with aonori (green dried seaweed) and often topped with finely chopped Japanese leek.

The seafood deluxe at 1300 yen is definitely recommended here! It has tasty shrimps, squid and scallops. Other popular choices are the tomato and cheese one at 1200 yen and the Hiroshima standard pork one at 850 yen.
You can adjust the amount and the variety of toppings you get on your okonomiyaki. You can add kimchi, squid tentacles and cheese among many other things at an extra cost.
For the drink menu, a large Asahi beer is 500 yen and various other cocktails including highballs, sour drinks and Japanese shochu are all 400 to 600 yen. Nothing tastes better than a hot okonomiyaki and a cold drink!


Hiroshima Okonomiyaki Kurimi is located at a 5 minute walk from the Kagurazaka Station, the Itabashi Station and the Ushigome Kagurazaka Station.


The other main style of Okonomiyaki is the Osaka one. To learn more about the differences between the two styles, see the following link!
