Hiroshima Prefecture is famed throughout Japan for its oyster industry, so Miyajima (Itsukushima) with its strong connection to oyster farming is the perfect place for such an event.
From a Cheapo angle, the festival offers good value with oysters selling from ¥100 each — much cheaper than the crazy prices paid for the same product in Tokyo. As if the oysters alone weren’t enough, there will also be a stage with taiko drumming entertainment.
How to get there
The festival takes place in front of Miyajima Pier.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
