two main choices:  either salted or sauced flavoured

Shio (Salt) Anago Meishi

Verdict: 5/5 will return (and we did return on the way back to Osaka)
The texture of the eel is so different from unagi – its bouncier, and tastes almost similar to the Chinese red grouper (hong ban) kind of firmness.
Although both looks the same, but i think we liked the sauce one better

Ueno Anago Meishi
1-5-11 Miyajimaguchi, Hatsukaichi,
Hiroshima Prefecture 739-0411, Japan

Heading towards the direction of the ferry, chanced upon this quaint cafe and had coffee

Verdict: 5/5 return will return (not on a full belly)
The staff was very friendly in engaging in conversation with us. Setting was very much like a localised coffee shop that neighbours just freely came in and had a cuppa 🙂 if you like to look at potteries and cups etc, this is a very nice place that sell pretty artistic unique kind of cups ..

alrighties onward Miyajima!!!
