A huge selection of craft sake from Ishikawa Prefecture is sold in the basement of this three-story shop - well over 100 varieties, including some two dozen sakes in convenient one-cup serving sizes. The basement also houses a budget-friendly dining counter where you can order a five-item set menu of Western dishes featuring local Ishikawa ingredients for just Y1500. Sake is extremely reasonable at Y800 for a 270ml (1.5 go) serving.

Fresh and frozen ingredients, candies and other prepared foods are sold on the main floor, with a small cafe area up on the second floor. Upstairs you'll also find a huge variety of local Ishikawa-ken crafts - colorful Kutani-yaki pottery, beautiful lacquerware, wood and paper crafts, and items covered in gold leaf, a major local industry.

The basement dining area is open 11am-3, 5-8:30pm (LO), closed Sundays. The cafe is open 10am-8pm.
