Miyajima Omotesando Shopping Street: Street Food Tour in Hiroshima for 3000 JPY



Miyajima is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Hiroshima Prefecture. It is a small island in Hiroshima Bay and is famous for Itsukushima Shrine, one of the three most scenic spots in Japan.

This time, I made a one-person trip to Miyajima to eat and walk in Omotesando Shopping Street, a 350-meter shopping street leading to Itsukushima Shrine.
Not just a food walk, but a food challenge for 3,000 yen worth of possessions!
I didn’t know how much I could eat, but I was able to eat a lot of Miyajima’s gourmet food, and it was a great day to fill my stomach and my heart ✨
