Oysters are the specialities in Hiroshima in autumn/winter.

There are various types of shops, but among them, the “oyster hut” has an funny image. If you haven't try it yet, don't worry, we are going to explain how to do.

My first “oyster hut”


Two systems

The shops are divided into “all-you-can-eat shops” where you have a time limit and “general stores” where you can order and eat normally without a time limit. Choose a store with a system that suits you depending on your appetite.

By the way, in the case of all-you-can-eat shops, you may have to order in units of 1kg, and there are about 10 to 12 oysters with shells. In addition, charcoal charges are charged for each table in any system (about a few hundred yen).



Since oyesters are grilled over charcoal, your clothes will inevitably smell the smoke. Therefore, it is best to avoid “fluttering fashionable clothes” as much as possible, and wear casual clothes that are easy to move in.


What to bring

There are many shops where you are free to bring in seasonings, so if you want to taste your own taste, you might want to try various things. Also, there are shops that allow soft drinks and alcohol for a fee in some cases, so check before you go.
