Full description
Hiroshima oysters are known as some of the best oysters in Japan. On this trip local fisherman will take you to an oyster farm and explain how they are grown. If you visit in the right season, you will be amazed to see lots of oysters growing on suspended ropes.

After visiting the oyster farm, the boat will head to Itsukushima island, home to the Itsukushima Shine. The shrine is best known for the iconic red floating Torii gate standing in the sea. Admire the scenic view of the floating Torii gate in front of a background of mountains.
