Okonomi-mura (お好み村?, lit. "Okonomiyaki Village") is a Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki food theme park located at 5-13 Shintenchi in Naka-ku, Hiroshima, Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.[1] It is near the east end of Hondōri and houses 26 okonomiyaki restaurants, each with a slightly different style and set of ingredients. The restaurants there use a specialty okonomiyaki sauce created especially for Okonomi-mura by Sun Foods.[2]

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported that Okonomi-mura was the top food theme park destination for families in Japan according to an April 2004 poll.[3][4]
