    Shimakawa Ame Ten is a specialist Ame (rice-sugar toffee) store located in Furukaji Town, Toyama City. Shimakawa Ame Ten sells Bakuga Mizuame (thick malt syrup) that is made with traditional techniques using only malt and starch, with no added sugar. The maltose gives it a delicious, slightly sweet flavor; because, after eating it, your blood sugar level goes up only very slowly, Bakuga Mizu-ame is also eaten as a health food. The store also sells bean confectionery and other sweets made of their malt syrup.

    "This historic Japanese confectionary established more than 260 years ago is an eight-minute walk from JR Isurugi Station in Toyama Prefecture. Their Usugori, thin rice crackers made with Shintaisho rice from Toyama Prefecture and topped with wasanbon (a special type of fine sugar made in Tokushima), have been part of the shop's tradition since its founding. They are notable for the way they melt in your mouth like ""thin ice"" as their name implies, as well as for the lingering flavor of the wasanbon. One of the shop's modern takes on this traditional sweet are its ""T-Go"" (T-5) rice crackers. These feature five different tones and tastes to enjoy, including salty cherry blossom and bitter matcha green tea."

One of their most popular items is their Koshino Yakamochi, created to celebrate the shop's 180th anniversary.

This store, their flagship location, sits at the Sakaemachi crossing north of Fujikoshi Station.

    とやマルシェの入り口で売っている甘金丹というお菓子を買ったのですが、どこにでもあるだっちもないスポンジ饅頭で、とってもガッカリしました。 なんの変哲もないものを名物っぽく売る神経がわからない。しかも、一個150円くらいです。半額でもいいでしょう。

    Toyama Pref. Kurobeshi Kurobekyoukokuguchi 11 within Unazuki station premises
    "This food court is located inside of the Kurobe Gorge Railway's Unazuki Station. Being located immediately outside of the ticket gate means that passengers can stop by for a snack while waiting on their trolley car. Their soft-serve ice cream, popular for its rich flavor and for melting in your mouth at just the right speed, comes in two varieties: vanilla and matcha green tea. We also recommend Unazuki Beer, a local craft beer made with two-row malt grown in Kurobe and their ""Meisui Hot Coffee"" made with Kurobe's famously great-tasting water. The food court also offers light fare such as their nikumaki dogs (bacon-wrapped rice on a stick) and their trolley car nikuman (meat buns), as well as bento boxes. "

    "This confectionary shop is located near the Johokumachi crossing on Prefectural Route 30. Professing a creed of ""preserving traditions while exploring new delicious tastes,"" the shop has kept alive the methods and flavors passed down since its founding. The shop is popular for the tastes it has refined since opening in 1951 as well as for its untiring spirit of enquiry. Each of their naturally-flavored sweets is made without additives, providing customers with peace of mind. Some of their notable products include their coffee-flavored Mikasayama, inspired by a conversation with family members, and their Nama Dorayaki, created based on interactions with customers. The fluffy cake and the sweetness created by the homemade adzuki bean paste make each of these treats highly addictive."
