Run by Niigata's famous Hakkaisan sake brewery, this specialty shop mainly sells food and drink featuring koji, the rice mold that's an essential part of the sake-brewing process. It's also offically an antenna shop for the city of Uonuma, Niigata, where Hakkaisan is located. Some highlights of the shop's products include koji-marinated fish (sold frozen), koji-infused ponzu and other sauces, and a colorful range of pickled vegetables.

They also stock a full line of Hakkaisan sake, including mini-size bottles, plus Hakkaisan craft beers and amazake. The shop's cafe window dispenses amazake, koji-infused matcha lattes, and kojified smoothies in kiwi, banana and tomato flavors.
