Best oyster restaurant on the island
Miyajima is known for its delicious oysters, and Kakiya is the perfect place to sample them. The restaurant stands out with its modern western-style façade and interiors on busy Omotesando Street.
In this eatery, the Kakiya Set for 2,150 yen ($18) is my recommendation. This set allows you to sample barbecued oysters, oyster rice, fried oysters, oiled oysters and miso soup with oysters.
The restaurant also has more than 2,500 bottles of wine in its cellar to go along with the oysters.
Hours: Daily, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Address: 539 Mijajimacho, Hatsukaichi City (7-minute walk from ferry pier)
