Standing at the far western end of Miyajima's town area, the Miyajima Public Aquarium ({, Miyajima Suizokukan) was rebuilt, greatly improved and reopened in August 2011.

The aquarium introduces the sea life of the local salt and fresh waters around Miyajima, the Seto Inland Sea and seas and oceans around the globe. Among the more original displays is an example of an oyster farm, representing the large numbers of actual farms around the island of Miyajima. Oysters are a local specialty of Hiroshima Prefecture.

Oyster Farm

Access

The aquarium is a ten minute walk from Itsukushima Shrine or a twenty minute walk from the ferry pier.
