Kakiya is an upmarket restaurant on Miyajima island that specialises in oyster dishes. It also has a large selection of French white wine particularly Chablis. We had the set menu and the grilled oysters. The oysters were delicious and my favourite was the oysters and rice. My wife enjoyed the smoked oyster the most. I recommend this restaurant although there... More

Early February-2017 We enjoyed fresh oysters (Komachi, a Hiroshima specialty oyster, not always available) n Jigozen oyster. Good though I must say, those at Cancale, France were still the best. We also ordered baked, steamed oyster rice n oiled oysters n an oyster omusubi (like onigiri), all very delicious. Oyster omiso soup comes with the steamed oyster rice. Lots of... More

Pro Tip: order the "secret" set menu that does not appear on the restaurant's menu. Yen 2,150 gets you 11 oysters cooked in four different way. Excellent! English menu available!

My friends told me to go here, and wasn't disappointed! Ordered fresh BBQ oysters. Warm, salty, fresh. I walked by it a couple times before I found it, keep your eyes open.

I really like this modern place in the heart of the city. You can only take oyster dishes. There are also some set menu available. One have deep fried oyster, rice, soup and salad (1.620 ¥). The most expensive one is the Kakiya set (2.690 ¥). My friend take the raw oyster with some pices (1.680¥) but he didn't have... More

We ordered a "set menu" and they asked if we meant the secret set, so we went along with it and we were not disappointed! Must eat here.

Having heard such good things about this restaurant, Kakiya was the first place we visited on Miyajima, even before the Torii gate! Be sure to order the oyster set with everything - deep fried oyster, cooked oyster, oyster rice, preserved oyster, oyster soup etc. Because of its fame however, expect the place to be crowded with tourists. We were seated... More

Came here for lunch and walked right in at 1pm while there was a huge line of tourists at Yakigaki. Lots of seating upstairs or traditional seating on main floor. Husband and I split the Kakiya set which had oysters 5 ways (¥2150) and the fried oyster set (¥1620). Great way to get a taste of a oysters in different... More

We had grilled oysters with rice. Overall they were really good but could have used a dipping. Honestly I still like my oysters raw with a nice vinaigrette.
