The highlight of this mid-sized prefectural antenna shop is probably their big selection of Miyagi-ken sake - some fifty or sixty varieties on sale in the first-floor liquor area. You can also find fresh fish and seafood in season, cheese and dairy products, Sendai beef and Hitomebori and Sasanishiki varieties of rice. Soft ice cream can be purchased from a dedicated window in front of the shop.
Popular packaged foods include pouches of tongue curry and tongue stew and various sembei crackers and sweets. Kokeshi dolls and Ogatsusuzuri inkstones are among the regional handicrafts on sale. Upstairs on the second floor is an all-day cafe-style restaurant called Date no Gyutan that specializes in beef tongue dishes, and next to it is a tourist-information counter.
