Amazing service that can be done because it is a producer

Shimada Fisheries is located about a 10-minute walk from JR Miyajimaguchi Station.


This long-established store has been producing oysters here since ancient times, and not only sells oysters, but also has a restaurant called “Kaki hut” that serves oyster dishes at Takacospa.


By the way, all-you-can-eat oysters are 2300 yen per hour!


It is a special price that can be done because it is a directly managed store of the producer.

Let's set sail while bathing in the beautiful morning sun!

The start of the landing tour is 7:00 in the morning.


If you go to the shop about ten minutes ago, you can see fishermen already working hard.


Oysters are brought in one after another in the factory at the back, and they are sorted out in a rattled and exhilarating way.


A large amount of oysters are blown away at once.


It is a board at once while being taken by the surprise.


Depending on the time of year, the morning sun will rise, so the surrounding scenery is expressive, depending on the sky, the sea, and the mountains.


In a tense, fresh air, the ship heads to the oyster-growing raft.

If you look under the raft, there are a lot of oysters there!


It seems to take about three years to become the size of the ready-to-eat, and it seems that it is necessary to move the movable raft to the appropriate place according to the situation of the water quality and the weather until then.


You can see how oysters are carefully grown.


In addition, you can also see oyster landing scenery on a special ship nearby.


The appearance that the oyster is thick lying on the rope of about 10m length is a masterpiece.


If you ask me how to grow them, how to eat hardships, characteristics of oysters, and how to eat delicious food, they will explain everything carefully, and my knowledge will deepen a lot.

Visit Itsukushima Shrine from the sea.

The great attraction of this tour is that the ship then heads to Itsukushima Shrine and can visit the Otorii gate from the sea.


(At the time of the interview, the Otorii gate was in the repair work and the appearance was not able to be worshiped though it was regrettable.)


Itsukushima Shrine floating on the surface of the water with the morning sun on its back is also a great place to be.


After the visit, you can have them drop off in Miyajima as they are, or you can go back to the oyster-making area to see how oysters are peeled off and enjoy oyster porridge.


Not only the landing tour, but also exhilarating cruising and visiting Itsukushima Shrine from the sea, etc., because it is the contents of the enhancement that can be enjoyed in various ways at once, please try to incorporate it into Miyajima sightseeing.
