Kusatsu Oyster House

This oyster hut is located near the Kusatsu fishing port in Nishi Ward, Hiroshima City. Kusatsu is said to be the birthplace of oyster farming in Japan, and there are several famous oyster farmers who know all about oyster farming. The oyster farmers jointly manage the Kusatsu Oyster House, and because it is directly managed by the oyster farmers, you can enjoy freshly landed, plump oysters. Moreover, they offer them at a relatively reasonable price, making it a place that residents of Hiroshima Prefecture who know about it visit every year. Furthermore, they even offer an all-you-can-eat grilled oyster course, making it the perfect spot for those who want to eat their fill of delicious oysters.

It is recommended for visitors to enjoy not only grilled oysters, but also various variations of oysters such as steamed oysters with sake, gansu with oysters, oysters in oil, and oysters grilled with miso. It is difficult to get there by public transportation, so please try renting a car.

Milky Iron Man's Oyster House

Located in Ujina, Hiroshima City, "Milky Tetsuo's Oyster House "is also known as the original oyster house and is probably the most well-known oyster house in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is known as an oyster hut where you can enjoy oysters for a relatively long period of time, as it is usually open from early October to early May. It is so popular that there is usually a line on Saturdays and Sundays.

You may worry at first about whether you will be able to grill the fresh, plump oysters yourself, but the experienced staff at this restaurant will give you a gentle lecture, so there is no need to worry. In addition to grilled oysters, you can also order oyster dishes such as oyster rice and oyster soup. In addition to oysters, seafood such as abalone, turban shells, scallops, and shrimp, sausage, and vegetables can also be grilled over charcoal and enjoyed just like a barbecue.

Incidentally, when the oyster hut is not open, the place is also popular as "Ujina BBQ Garden ", so you can enjoy this spot all year round. It is also near Hiroshima Port Station on the Hiroden Line, making it an attractive oyster shack for those who want to enjoy drinking as well.

This oyster hut also offers an all-you-can-eat oyster course for one hour, where you can eat all the fresh oysters you want for a very reasonable price of 2,300 yen.

For those who want to enjoy oyster dishes other than grilled oysters, we recommend the oyster set meal, which includes grilled oysters, oyster rice, fried oysters, and miso soup.

Shimada Suisan has other attractions as well. Since Miyajima, one of Hiroshima's most popular sightseeing spots, is located near Shimada Suisan, it may be a good idea to visit Shimada Suisan's oyster hut in combination with a sightseeing tour of Miyajima.

"It is also an oyster hut with a commitment to local production for local consumption ". Seafood other than oysters is also from Setoda, and the Setouchi lemon drink from Setoda has a refreshing taste that goes well with the oysters.

Oyster House Fukuromachi, Kaihei Shoten

Located in the center of Hiroshima City, Fukuromachi Oyster House "Kaihei Shoten "is a direct descendant of the Oyster House Ujina introduced earlier. Despite its location in the city, it has gained popularity as an oyster hut where one can enjoy fresh oysters.

The signature item of this restaurant, "Milky Tetsuo no Gan-yaki ", is a very popular menu item with the strongest cosmetic value and attracts many customers. Other oyster dishes are also available, including not only teppan oyster dishes such as oyster tempura and fried oysters, but also relatively rare dishes such as oyster bacon with butter, oyster in oil, oyster on kelp, and even delicacies such as oyster salted fish and oyster pickled in salted malted rice. Another feature of this restaurant is that you can enjoy oysters all year round.

In addition to oysters, the izakaya menu is of course extensive and includes a large selection of fresh sashimi, meats, ganze, grilled dishes, deep-fried dishes, salads, and more.

The Oyster House near Higashi Onomichi Station in Onomichi is another place I would like to recommend. Fresh and plump oysters in large and extra-large sizes are available, and you can enjoy eating them hot and fresh on the spot. You can enjoy them with condiments such as ponzu (Japanese citrus juice), soy sauce, and spices to taste, but we recommend you try them with a squeeze of Setoda's refreshing lemon.

Oyster House Ryumeimaru

Morio Suisan's directly operated restaurant in Higashi-Hiroshima, "Oyster House Ryumeimaru "is another famous oyster house that you should definitely visit at least once. The reason for this is that Ryumeimaru is an oyster hut that serves "Oyster Komachi ", which is considered to be the finest brand variety in Hiroshima.

Oyster Komachi is an oyster of an improved breed and is about 1.5 times larger than regular oysters, making it an excellent choice for eating. In addition, it is said that fresh oysters can only be eaten from fall to spring, but in the case of Oyster Komachi, fresh ones can be had all year round.

Ryumeimaru is also passionate about the quality of its oysters, producing oysters of such high quality that they have been certified by Hiroshima Prefecture as "Premium Top Oyster ".

You can enjoy such delicious and fresh oyster komachi boldly in a barbecue style, but since Ryumeimaru is located by the sea, grilled oysters while listening to the sound of the waves are also very special. In addition to grilled oysters, we also offer a variety of fried oysters, oyster rice, and local seafood.

In addition, the owner's key dish, called "Oyster Marukun ", a takoyaki-like dish with a single oyster in it, is definitely a gourmet dish that can only be found at Ryumeimaru, and is a must-try.
