In addition to the usual local food and booze, this large prefectural antenna shop offers a good assortment of crafts - tableware, glassware, wooden dolls and other decorative items. The sake area features more than 100 kinds of sake from Fukushima, some of them otherwise hard to find in Tokyo.

Food items include fresh produce; fruit jams and preserves; many types of miso and soy sauce; soba, udon and rice noodles; twelve kinds of packaged curry; kamaboko fish cakes; pickles and ice cream.

Near the back of the shop there's a sake counter where you can get a three-glass tasting flight of Fukushima sake for around Y500, from 4-8pm (last order is 7:30). At lunchtime the counter sells four different types of bento lunches, which you can take out or eat in the shop. Free tea is provided to go with your bento.
