Omotesando Shopping Street, Miyajima | Japan Solo Travel 2017

June 09, 2017

My itchy fingers obviously wanted an ornacle, but they're all written in Japanese.

Miyajima was considerably more massive than I expected it to be, and I had to utilise Google Maps to find my way to Itsukushima Shrine. Couldn't resist entering these shops along Omotesando Shopping Street because they had such adorable Japan souvenirs for sale!

Oh Japan, you know the way to my heart!

Miyajima is famous for their momiji manju, a steamed bun shaped like a Japanese maple leaf. Momiji manju is traditionally filled with red bean, but there has been an increase in the varieties of flavours available like chocolate, cheese and cream.
