Enjoyed across Japan, Oysters are a delicacy rich in nutrients and flavor. A favorite in Hiroshima, oysters are a popular choice among locals who want to enjoy a hearty snack. For over 450 years, delicious oysters have been farmed in the Seto-Inland Sea in Hiroshima and Miyajima. The quality of the seawater provide excellent nutrients for the oysters to develop a rich, delicious flavor. Hiroshima is regarded as the top producer of oysters in Japan, and is considered one of the best four regions for oysters. The residents of Miyajima love oysters so much, there is a celebration every February to enjoy the peak-season for oysters. Oysters are enjoyed grilled, fried, or added as a protein to dishes and can be found at many restaurants in Hiroshima and Miyajima.
