Description of plan

We will visit a floating oyster raft built on the other side of a World Heritage Itsukushima Shrine of Miyajima. The tour is offered by Shimada Fisheries which has been producing Miyajima oysters for many years.
You can watch oyster landing at a close distance, when oysters suspended from the raft down the sea are lifted.
A huge bundle of oysters lifted by crane can be a 10 meter tall.
This amazing scene can be a cool experience available in Hiroshima only.
