Café “Kakiwai” sits on a hill commanding a magnificent view of Miyajima's five-story pagoda and the inland sea of Japan. The open terrace and the large-windowed wide dining room are simple, created from an old house. We can get a breath-taking view from every table. You might enjoy a glass of white wine along with marinated oysters cooked in oil, or artistically decorated cakes with tea. The café provides a nice and quiet time remote from the hustle and bustle of this very busy and crowded tourist site. This is the antenna shop of an oyster restaurant “Kakiya” at Omotesando Street in Miyajima. The main restaurant is very popular among both locals and tourists.
