I don't now how much more effort I want to put into booking for nice lunch places in Hiroshima and Nara. I think I may as well give up on those top restaurants (booked plenty in Tokyo and Kyoto already) and go casual instead.
So, what are my choices for a good casual lunch (no need to book) in Hiroshima, Nara and Shiroishi? Probably aiming for more cooked food than sushi at these location. I would love an unagi place. Maybe an izakaya. Open to ramen shop and others. Keep in mind that we do not speak Japanese, so somewhere manageable with Google translate would be great.
We'll be taking day trips to each of these places. In Hiroshima, somewhere close to the historical sites. In Nara, close by the park where the deers are. And Shiroishi, just somewhere close by the train station as we'll be heading to fox village after.
