We were intrigued to try this place after seeing the long queue outside; a restaurant has to be good to inspire people to queue in the freezing cold Japanese winter, especially when there is no shortage of alternative oyster restaurants on Miyajima. The oysters were huge and available in many delicious forms including natural, crumbed, gratin and flame grilled. This... More

Recommended by a couple of the locals and we had to give it a try....AMAZING!!! Some of the best oysters I've ever had! So fresh and delicious!!! My friend doesn't even like oysters and he loved the fried oysters. I ordered the plate of 4 raw oysters (¥1,000) and a single sweet one (¥400). Definitely worth it!! ☆

Brilliant find. We came her following the great reviews on trip advisor and were or disappointed. Pay special attention to the photos of the outside otherwise you'd never find it!! There was a bit of a queue but there are plenty of tables and it moved fast. We had brilliant oysters and great wine. A truly fantastic lunch venue. Make... More

We made a trip to Miyajima to see the beautiful shrines and Torii gate and stopped over at this place for lunch. Why this one and not so many of the other places also serving great looking food? Basically because it only served oysters and had a HUGE selection of wines. There is no English signage that we could see... More

It was raining pretty hard when we left hiroshima, and it was worse as we got to miyajima. Another reviewer told about the sampler. Worth it. Comes with a little of everything. The server said it was a secret menu item. Shouldn't be a secret. It's awesome.

Wow, the prices were the same as everywhere else and the oysters were amazing! We were in miyajima for 2x days and ate a little of everything. Then we found kakiya and they made the best oysters i've had in a while. What a place !

After much prodding and insisting for a restaurant recommendation in Miyajima, the concierge at the Sheraton in Hiroshima finally mentioned Kakiya. I'm really glad he did! This was one of the highlight meals (there were many) of our trip to Japan. There's every imaginable type of oyster here, and we stuffed ourselves for about 5000 yen for the two of... More

Despite the language barrier, out server told us about a 2000 yen set that had a little of everything you could want on their menu. It was super yummy and I was STUFFED! Beautiful atmosphere and clean environment. Spent 5000 yen for my husband and I to eat ourselves crazy! Highly Recommend!
