Hi! This is Kana!

The maple-leaves going to turn red in Miyajima Island little by little.

The best season is from around middle of November to end of November.

There are a lot of maple trees in "Momijidani-park".
I really wanna recommend trekking from that park to Mt, Misen.
You will see a beautiful nature and Setonai Ocean view there.

We are looking forward to seeing you here in Miyajima!


The ferry pier at Miyajimaguchi was renewed in the process of renovation of Miyajimaguchi harbor area.

Hiroshima is a famous as a  good place for oyster firming and the best season of oyster is coming now.

There is a lot of oyster restaurants called "Kaki-Goya" in Hiroshima.
Most of them offer fresh and high-quality oysters at a low price because they are managed by fisherman and oyster farmers.

At Kaki-Goya, the customers purchase oysters or other sea foods and then grill them by themselves with BBQ prepared in advance.

The manholes in Hiroshima depict Oysters on the surface.

Due to renovations taking place in the Miyajimaguchi ferry pier,
the Miyajima ferry landing will be relocated in late October.

The detales can be found in the following link.
