    Miyagi Pref. Sendaishi Aoba-ku Chuou 2-3-18
    The main store of Abe Kamaboko-ten is said to be where the name of the Sendai specialty, Sasa (bamboo) kamaboko, originated from. As well as selling all kinds of kamaboko (fish cake) including the bamboo kamaboko (fish cakes in the shape of bamboo leaves), visitors can also have a go at grilling their own bamboo kamaboko in the shop and of course taste it too.

    Looks like a gourd and cost 200 yen. However it is just alright. Pretty ordinary as the coat of battery is thick but then it is well fried. Buy to share. Have a try if you happen to walk past.

Those with reservations can experience koma (top for spinning play) decoration, kokeshi wooden doll decoration, chopstick lacquering, handkerchief indigo dyeing, and jigsaw woodworking. There are also seasonal events that visitors can enjoy while walking through the site. It’s about 15 minutes by car from the Sendai Minami Interchange on the Tohoku Expressway.

    This is a lovely place to do crafts or to purchase crafts. The one downside is that it is hard to get here by public transit. Worth a stop if you are coming to the area!
