    A long-standing Japanese confectionary shop located in Kawai Town, Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture. The shop’s signature item is the egara manju, a renowned Wajima sweet. Smooth sweet bean paste wrapped in a glutinous rice flour dough which is dyed a vivid yellow using Cape jasmine which is then steamed to create an extremely rare Japanese treat. The name is said to come from its resemblance to an iga Japanese chestnut, the pronunciation of which was corrupted into “egara.” The name is sometimes also written with characters meaning “fate,” “congratulations,” and “good” for good luck. Extremely popular, egara manju often sell out early in the day.

The shop's simple miso manju steamed buns consist of homemade an pasted created with select, Hokkaido-grown white kidney beans in a miso-flavored dough.

    "A senbei rice cracker shop which is the official senbei provider to the Soji-ji Temple Daihonzan (Head temple), an ancient temple in Wajima. The shop has operated a stall in the Wajima Morning Market for over half a century. The shop's products are popular not only with locals but tourists as well. The shop's senbei are made with ""ingredients needed by your body"" which Japanese people have eaten since ancient times, baked as-is without additives into tasty rice crackers. The shop's crisp and slightly sweet ""Asaichi Senbei Kanmi,"" one of the most popular products sold in the market, are made with potato starch as the main ingredient and are thus also known as ""jagaimo"" (potato) senbei. In addition to old fashioned Wajima-style shio (salt) senbei, the shop's ""Ishiru Senbei,"" made with traditional Noto ishiru fish sauce, are also recommended. (Address listed is for factory. Wajima Morning Market address: 150-3-48 Futegawa-machi Ishida, Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture.)"
