Shops on Omotesando

Shopping and Souvenirs

Omotesando shopping street is the busiest place in Miyajima for souvenior shops and restaurants. This area was formed from land reclaimed at the end of the Edo period. This area became the main street during the Showa period, as the area developed economically. Both sides of the street are packed with souvenir shops and restaurants.

In addition to T shirts, keyholders, and cell phone straps, there are many other traditional Miyajima souvenirs.

These special products are the  wood turnery from the end of the 19th century, Miyajima Bori from the end of the Edo period, and Miyajima rice scoops, also from the end of the Edo period.

The biggest scoop in the world!

It took 2 years and 10 months to make the scoop in 1983, both as a symbol of Miyajima, and also to pass down the Miyajima Zaiku to future generations.

Food Tasting Gourmet Route

 

Momiji Manjyu :

Momiji Manjyu, shaped like maple leaves, are the most representative souvenir of Miyajima. Sweet red bean paste in Castella dough is common, but you can also choose from chocolate, custard, maccha, cheese, chestnut, and even ice cream. You can also buy them individually.

Please try freshly baked Momiji Manjyu.

Miyajima Oysters :

On the Omotesando path, the smell of grilled oysters fills the air.

We are lucky enough to have favourable conditions for oyster farming, with safely set oyster rafts. Because of mild waves, few natural disasters and an appropriate tide flows. All these conditions are good for growing oysters. We are therefore able to taste the best in Miyajima!  

Nigiri Ten :
