Abby, Amanda, Brenda, Elizabeth, and Teresa–I couldn’t take all the credit 🙂  Thank you for this wonderful adventure–Hyla.

Oyster Queen is located along Route 2 towards Miyajima.  If you have been on that stretch of Route 2, you might have noticed this building as you gazed out towards the water.  While most of us refer to both the building and the seafood restaurant inside as Oyster Queen, the actual name of the restaurant inside is Restaurant Ju-yon Ban Me No Tsuki, or Restuarant 14th Moon.


Upon entering, there is a small store where you can buy fresh seafood (we saw clams, oysters, and mussels on the day we went).  There’s also a small selection of Japanese ingredients and pre-packaged frozen seafood.  At the cash register, you can order a few things: oyster burger, fried oyster, and ice-cream.

OysterQueen2The restaurant is located past the store.  We went at lunch time during the week right when they first opened, so we didn’t have any problems getting a table for six adults and a toddler (granted, it was a bit of a tight squeeze).  The restaurant filled up pretty quickly, and it was full by the time we finished lunch.



Ordering was a bit challenging since none of us could really read Japanese, but one of our friends came prepared with a few translated pages of the menu and the rest of us used our phones to finish the translation on the spot.  We all took turns taking pictures of the restaurant, the menu, and the food.  It really was a team effort and we had a lot of fun.  Unfortunately the translated pages have been lost but there is a list of Japanese food ingredients that has not only the Japanese/English translation but also a pronunciation guide.  You will want to know the words for oyster, clam, mussels, shrimp, squid, etc.  The staff spoke a little bit of English, but not much.  Below are pictures of the menu (click to enlarge).


Set Menu


Seafood you can grill at your table


Appetizers, soups, sides


More “grill your own” choices.

Don’t let the lack of an English menu intimidate you–it is part of the experience!  Here are some pictures of what we ate.


Seafood bisque. It was everyone’s favorite.


Oyster Burger–a very popular dish.  Sometimes it is not available because the restaurant runs out of buns.


Part of a set menu, assorted seafood to grill at your own table.


Salad and fried shrimp, part of a set.


Steamed mussels (we put it back on the grill to cook it a little bit more)



Miso soup, oyster rice bowl, and oyster on a hot plate with veggies. Part of a set.


Baked cheesy oyster.


Salad, oyster on half shell, assorted tempura, rice, miso soup, and a small plate of pickled vegetable. Part of a set.

We enjoyed our visit to the Oyster Queen.  The food was good and the prices reasonable.  The only complaint some of us we had was that the oyster burger and mussels were slightly under-cooked for our taste; nonetheless, we thought everything was delicious.  One more thing: if you order oysters to grill at your own table, you get to shuck your own oysters.  It wasn’t that bad:  our friend figured it out pretty fast.  Also, watch out for hot liquid popping out of the oysters!


DIRECTIONS:  Go out the main gate and take a right onto Route 188 at four corners. Follow 188 to Route 2 and take right towards Otake and Hiroshima.  Keep going like you’re going towards Miyajima.  The restaurant will be on your right-hand side, next to the water.  If you reach the restaurant with a giant waterwheel next to the road (on the left-hand side), you have gone too far.

BY TRAIN:  The nearest train station is Maezora station, about 1.5 km away.  From the station, walk south along Route 2 until you reach the restaurant.


RESTAURANT HOURS:  11:30 AM – 4:00 PM then 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM.  Last order 30 minutes before closing time.

METHOD OF PAYMENT:  Cash (yen) or credit card.
