Miyajima Island is located a ferry ride away from Hiroshima. It is a very popular place to visit for a day trip or relaxing weekend at one of the island's ryokans. Miyajima is known for various seafood offerings and other street food items. There are plenty of restaurants and food stalls available to try a little bit of everything. However, few restaurants are open for dinner due to many tourists leaving the island by 6 p.m. Some tourists do stay overnight at a ryokan or hotel.
Oysters are a real treat on Miyajima Island. You can get amazing oysters roasted, fried, or raw (when in season). Various restaurants serve delicious oyster dishes. You can also try one at a food stall. If you have a love for seafood and shellfish, this is not something that can be missed.
Conger Eel dishes are also a local specialty. The most common dish is conger eel over rice. You may be able to find sushi-style eel on the island depending on the season and availability.
A popular street food item is momiji manju (momiji is maple leaf). They are maple leaf shaped steamed buns with a sweet-bean or other sweet filling. You can see them available in windows or in boxes at gift shops.
One more thing worth trying is the beer from Miyajima Brewery. Their Pale Ale is quite good. Be sure to try one of their brews while enjoying lunch or dinner.
There are other great food items such as fried seafood cakes and conch available across the island. Be sure to indulge in local delicacies while visiting Mijajima Island.
