Shikato Lemon is a general store located in the etto shopping mall near the Miyajima-guchi pier. The name “Shikato Lemon,” which literally means, “deer and lemon,” comes from the wild deer that live on Miyajima and the lemons that are a specialty of the Seto Inland Sea. In the spacious store, you can find small items with the motif of the deer that gave the store its name, as well as cosmetics made with lemons. Goods featuring the Hiroshima Toyo Carp, a professional baseball team based in Hiroshima, are also popular.
