Oysters and Chablis on Miyajima

Oysters and Chablis on Miyajima

Watch the sun go down on Miyajima Island with some of the freshest locally farmed oysters washed down with a glass of fine wine

You've visited World Heritage site Itsukushima Shrine; you've seen the floating tori gate; you've taken a hundred pictures of cute deer; and you've hiked down Mount Misen. So what does Miyajima have left to offer? The answer is simple - the freshest locally farmed oysters washed down with a glass of cold premiere cru Chablis with a spectacular view of the sun setting behind Miyajima's five story pagoda.

Sometimes it is the most surprising experiences on holiday that delight the most. Up on the hillside above Miyajima's bustling main street is a delightful café dedicated to Miyajima's most famous produce (that's oysters not Chablis) and here you can sit back and reflect on all you've seen during your time on the island. We recommend a sunset tipple for a true highlight of your stay in Japan.

When to go: Oysters are best in the colder months so for the very best experience you should plan your visit to be no earlier than the beginning of November and no later than the middle of April. Of course, the wine is excellent all year round so don't let the lack of oysters put you off. This is an experience for all seasons.
