The word “okonomiyaki” comes from the idea that you can add the things you like to the dish. It’s been around since Sengoku period (1467-1615). Originally, it was a type of sweet, but it changed to staple food during the Meiji era (1868-1912) because it can be eaten immediately after cooking.
The difference between typical “okonomiyaki” and Hiroshima “okonomiyaki” is the addition of Chinese noodles.
