10 days in Japan - 10/29/2022 to 11/7/2022










Day 8-Hiroshima




Day 9- Omotesando street, Miyajima-11/6/22

Omotesando Street is the commercial hub of Miyajima. It is located near the Itsukushima Shrine and the pier. It is filled with gift shops, restaurants, coffee shops, ice cream shops, candy stores etc...


Lots of shops in this area.


There are also a lot of people walking around.


There are multiple small vendors selling everything from fish cakes and flame-grilled oysters, etc...


You can find plenty of delightful treats while strolling along the street; one of the sought-after offerings is the grilled oyster.


There are a lot of shops selling grilled oysters.


We bought two oysters for a quick snack.


This shop is very popular and there is always a long line.


We got our oysters.


Very rich but also very tasty.  1 enough as it is so rich.


We were told to try momiji manju.  They are made by wrapping adzuki bean jam in a castella-like dough, made using wheat, eggs, sugar and honey and baking the combination in a maple-leaf-shaped mold. For the jam, it’s considered customary to use koshi-an, a form of pureed sweet bean jam made by removing the testa, or outer covering, of adzuki beans. Momiji manju are actively sold on the road approaching Itsukushima Shrine on the island of Miyajima in Hiroshima, and there are facilities where you can even try making them for yourself.


We are now back to the Miyajima ferry station,
