    An ama-natto specialty shop located in the Nishi Chaya District in No-machi, Kanazawa City, Ishikawa Prefecture. Originally providing gifts for geisha to give to favored customers, this popular shop has gained a reputation through word-of-mouth and from celebrities specially ordering its products. Using a variety of ingredients, including dainagon adzuki beans, red kidney beans, chickpeas, pinto beans, and white and black soybeans, the shop creates moist, delicately sweet ama-natto made without preservatives or colorings. The shop’s ama-natto is popular with tourists as a reasonably-priced Kanazawa souvenir. The rear of the shop is used as a takeout café in the summer (opens irregularly) where customers can enjoy shaved ice topped with specially prepared mamemitsu beans in sweet syrup.

    A market filled with fresh-caught seafood from Ishikawa Prefecture located in Kanazawa Port a 15 minute walk from the Kanazawa Port Exit of JR Kanazawa Station. Here you'll find the freshest seafood put up for sale immediately after being bought wholesale at auction. In addition, because the market's shops are directly operated by sellers and the seafood doesn't pass through the hands of various middlemen, the prices are extremely reasonable. There are six shops in the market, including a shop where you can enjoy a seafood rice bowl on the spot, a shop selling vegetables, and a shop which carries processed foods like dried fish and tsukudani foods boiled and preserved in soy sauce. Only in November and December, you can buy Kano crab and snow crab.

    Omicho market sells a large number of marine products caught outside Ishikawa prefecture. However, Kanazawa iki-iki fish market sells fish, shellfish etc captured at the coast of Ishikawa prefecture...

    I tried one Shrimp and one crab Korokke. It tastes like a deep fried mashed potato stuffing with filling, and that is a bit what it is. Not bad if you are close by.

    A long-standing “ame” candy and syrup shop located in Kobashi-machi, Kanazawa, Ishikawa which was established in 1830. It is said the shop was started after the original owner witnessed the struggles of mothers who were unable to produce milk for their newborn babies and decided to create a highly nutritious ame which could be given to suckling infants. The shop’s ame is made with only domestic rice and barley. The shop’s signature item is its Jiro-ame, a “mizuame” thick syrup. This can be eaten as-is but it’s also popularly used as a natural seasoning and secret ingredient in vegetable, fish, and meat dishes.

    "A sake brewery established in 1913 and situated along the Wajima Morning Market street. The brewery was started after the founder was told to do so in a dream by a white horse with a gold gourd tied to it; this anecdote also served as the inspiration for the name of one of the brewery's most popular sake brands, Kinpyo Shirakoma (""Gold Gourd White Horse""). The brewery makes its sakes using well water drawn from under the brewery itself. The brewery takes pride in its Wajima sakes made with water from a well that is the closest to the Sea of Japan of any brewery. Other sake brands the brewery sells include Ore no Sake and Noto no Sake. The brewery's sakes have a crisp, dry flavor; the brewery's shop offers storefront sake tastings."
