Omotesando Shopping Street
About Omotesando Shopping Street
Not to be confused with the Omotesando Shopping Street in Tokyo, this busy main street in Miyajima is full of souvenir stores and restaurants.
Built on land reclaimed from the sea during the Edo Period, Miyajima’s 350m long Omotesando Shopping Street is a bustling area full of souvenir stores, street food vendors, inns and restaurants.
With around 70 stores to browse, the covered shopping street offers delights for all tastes and budgets.
Be sure to try the local speciality - momiji manjuu. These maple-leaf shaped buns are traditionally filled with red bean paste, but are now available with a range of different fillings.
If you’re more in the mood for savoury, be sure to try some of the succulent local Hiroshima oysters, cooked fresh.
Opening times vary, but stores typically open around 10:00 and close around 17:30.
