When we talk about nightlife in Hiroshima, Nagarekawa is the place to go to. Called the ultimate party district, this place has it all - beer gardens, izakayas, late-night eateries, bars, nightclubs, pachinko parlors, hostess clubs and everything beyond. But if you are looking for a calmer night out, Hakushima is the place. You will be surprised to know that Hiroshima is famed for its world-class sake. Every October, the Saijo district hosts a huge sake festival. Drinking age is 20, and by 2:00 a.m. most bars close for the day. Before you leave Hiroshima, try their special dish Okonomiyaki. It is basically a crepe loaded with noodles, your choice meat, vegetables with a savory-sweet sauce.
