Kakiya (meaning “Oyster House”) is a restaurant specializing in oyster dishes on the island of Miyajima. There are countless restaurants on Miyajima that serve oysters, but Kakiya is the only one that specializes only in oysters. Kakiya offers various oyster dishes, including grilled oysters on the half shell, raw oysters, rice cooked with oysters, and oysters in oil. There is also a large selection of bottled souvenirs, such as Oyster dressing and Oyster tsukudani.
Moment of Joy
One of the most attractive features of Kakiya is the aroma of fresh oysters being cooked, which can be smelled even from outside the restaurant. Inside the restaurant’s elegant open space, which is like that of a French restaurant, you can enjoy oyster dishes that use large, plump oysters that are farmed off the coast of Miyajima. The oyster shop also offers a wide range of alcoholic beverages that go well with oyster dishes. The wine list includes wines produced at Hiroshima’s very own Miyoshi Winery.
