Unlike most prefectural antenna shops, this spacious, attractively appointed store specializes in local handicrafts more than food and drink, and it's well worth visiting just for its pottery selection. You'll also find beautiful glassware, paper and wooden crafts, lacquerware, metalwork and umbrellas, all at reasonable prices (especially for this rather expensive neighborhood).
There is a small section devoted to food, of course, where they stock frozen fish, miso paste, goma-dofu (sesame tofu) and around thirty types of Fukui sake. A cafe-restaurant area behind the shop serves full meals.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
