Ishiwata Shoten (Summary)

Ishiwata Genzaburo Shoten





  Ishiwata Genzaburo Shoten is a long established grocery store since the beginning of Meiji era.

  We specialize in the dried foods such as soybeans, azuki beans, Hijiki (dried edible algae), and native Wakame (seaweed) etc. since we opened our store 150 years ago.

  All of our products are dried in the sun, while many other producers use electricity.  Therefore, our dried foods taste natural and delicious.


  There is a Zashiki (Japanese style room) in the back, which is not for the store but it's a part of our home.  We kept that style of the old Japanese store and will keep it up.
