Oysters of Hiroshima

Here we sell ” miso-flavored grilled oysters.” It is said that oyster farming began in earnest in Hiroshima in the early Edo Period. During the Edo Period, oysters were already being transported to Osaka by boat. There these boats became known as Hiroshima’s “oyster boats.” By the late Edo Period, they started to serve oyster dishes on the boat and it became very popular. The oysters we serve today are Jigozen oysters. These oysters are usually auctioned at Tokyo Central Market (formerly Tsukiji Market).
