    Hiroshima Pref. Hatsukaichishi Miyajimaguchi 1-10-7
    Okinado is a well known shop which sells momiji manju located just outside JR Miyajima Station and popular with tourists returning from Miyajima. Their prized castella dough which has been created from hours of practice is as soft as a sponge cake. They have a wide variety of momiji manju on sale with flavors including bean paste made with large adzuki beans, Swiss chocolate, Uji matcha green tea, and a mix of seven different cheeses. Their limited available cakes as well as their Momiji (autumn leaves) shortbread cookies are also popular choices.

    This is my favorite spot to buy Momiji Manju. They’re always making fresh ones and once in a while I get a chocolate one that is still warm. So delicious!!! I also love their 4 seasons flavors.

    Hiroshima Pref. Hatsukaichishi Miyajimachou Nakae 304-1
    A long established momiji manju store founded in the late Meiji period and located in Miyajima Town, Hatsukaichi City, Hiroshima Prefecture. The shop sells momiji manju filled with homemade bean paste made with adzuki beans from Hokkaido. They sell only two varieties, koshian, a smooth bean paste filling, and tsubuan, a more granular, lumpy bean filling. It is said that this was the first shop to think up the tsubuan variety momiji manju. Their signature product, tsubu-momiji is known for its flavorsome adzuki beans and its refined sweetness. The castella dough of the cake is plump and soft, and remains so even after a few days, making it a perfect gift or souvenir.

    This is a small bakery which makes some tasty pastries filled with bean curd. I had one warm which is the way to do it. Great little snack for one dollar. Enjoy.

    Hiroshima Hatsukaichi-shi Miyajimacho 448-1
    This historic momiji manju buns shop has been in business for over 100 years. Still located on the exact same spot as when it was founded, the shop continues to make momiji manju, a traditional Miyajima confection. The shop’s momiji manju are baked a golden yellow and have a fluffy, delicate texture. The shop uses only domestic Momiji eggs and whips them for an extended period of time, resulting in a batter that is air-filled and fluffy. The shop’s crispy, piping hot deep-fried momiji manju, a staple for tourists to enjoy while walking around Miyajima, were invented by the shop’s fourth generation owner out of a desire to find a delicious way to make use of momiji manju whose shape didn’t come out quite right in the production process.

    Bought to try but loved it. Bought few flavours to try them all. Delicious. Went back for seconds. Whilst in miyajima dont miss trying them.

    老舗の和菓子屋さんと知らずレモンケーキ目的に立ち寄りました。やや小ぶりなレモンケーキは中のスポンジがほわっとして、優しいお味でした。保存料なしのためか賞味期限が短めで、職場のお土産には買えませんでしたが、すぐに渡せるなら喜ばれそうですね。しば餅も歯ごたえや餡の甘みの加減がとてもよく、美味しく頂戴しました。見た目スタンダードですがどれも丁寧さが感じられ美味しかったです。今度来る時はみしま饅頭を頂...

Hiroshima Areas

There is more than meets the eye awaiting any Hiroshima-bound traveler. Kicking off in Hiroshima city, the Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima Castle, and Shukkeien Garden offer a couple of days of exploring; however, the real beauty lies along the southern coast of the prefecture. There, a series of islands spreads across the Seto Inland Sea: from the mysterious sea-submerged Great Torii Gate at Miyajima Island to the first half of the islands that connect Honshu to Shikoku via six spectacular suspension bridges.
