Oyster Lover? Can't Miss Miyajima in Hiroshima Prefecture!
Miyajima Island in Hiroshima Prefecture is famous for Itsukushima Shrine that is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site, but how many of you know that Miyajima is must-see place for oyster lovers?
From Hiroshima Station to Miyajima takes about an hour and you will see this oyster paradise!
Fresh Grilled Oysters Everywhere...Yes, Everywhere.
You see fresh grilled oysters in a booth...and these booths are everywere on the island. Mmm...smells SO good!
Oysters are seasoned with butter, soy sauce etc., so you can try and find your new favorite!

If you visit here during the winter, you can find places to eat fresh oyster 200 yen each!! Affordable yumminess filling your mouth!!
Shiny like a jewel... 200 yen each means you pay only 1000 yen to eat 5 beautiful oysters!
Who Made Me A Crazy Oyster Lover? Restaurant Kakiya Did!
I'll tell you what...I wan't a big fan of oysters until my tongue experienced Kakiya Teishoku (Kakiya's set) at the restaurant called Kakiya. I fell in love with oysters!
Oyster in oil, deep fried oyster, oyster miso soup, oyster in rice, grilled oyster... You can’t go wrong! The restaurant has many kinds of beer and wine that go well with your oysters. You wonder if they have Chablis? Of course they do!!
Grilled oysters and beer are best friends.
What a fantastic paradise, Miyajima! I am pretty sure its nickname can be "Oyster Island!!"
Well, if you are not fan of oysters, Miyajima has other delicious dishes such as grilled eel on rice, so no worries! As I said, I am a crazy oyster lover so I always have oysters during my visit.
