Okonomiyaki is the popular food in Japan. In postwar Hiroshima, okonomiyaki was invented to save a few wheat flour and vegetables (for example, cabbage, bean sprout, green onion and so on.) because foods are shortage. It is called "okonomiyaki (fried liking foods)" because people made okonomiyaki to include their favorite foods in the past.
