Akushu Cafe

Take a relaxing break at our cafe inside Hiroshima’s landmark building Orizuru Tower and try our popular “okonomiyaki sticks”!

Akushu Cafe ("handshake cafe") is located in Hiroshima's new landmark building, Orizuru Tower, which is near the Atomic Bomb Dome. Made with ingredients from Hiroshima and Setouchi, enjoy menu items unique to Akushu Cafe.
In addition to the first floor’s indoors seats and outdoor terrace seats (pets are allowed only at the terrace), you can enjoy your meal up on the tower’s "Hiroshima no Oka" rooftop observatory.

Please try Akushu Cafe’s exclusive menu items such as our original Hiroshima-style “okonomiyaki sticks” which is “okonomiyaki,” a very filling savory pancake-like dish filled with a variety of ingredients that is usually served flat on a hot plate with utensils, which we wrap in a conveniently easy-to-eat form (in a shape similar to a burrito or sandwich wrap).
We also serve potato chips made from fresh potatoes sent directly from Aki-Tsu which are also popular as a quick easy snack. We offer seats with plenty of room in a spacious interior with a high ceiling.
We aim to be a welcoming place where everyone – from Hiroshima locals (including workers coming out of nearby offices to grab lunch) to travellers visiting from other cities in Japan or countries around the world – can feel comfortable while spending an enjoyable and harmonious time together.
