    This factory and shop deals in snacks made with sea products. Reservations aren't required for their tours where you can watch them making octopus rice crackers from the viewing area. The shop offers about 40 varieties and there are samples available of most of them for you to try. Their thin baked Tako-usu Yaki rice crackers made with octopus, squid, and shrimp come recommended. They're flavorful, firm, and crispy. There is also a break area with free coffee.

    We stopped here after visiting the shrine. Interesting place as they make various flavored rice crackers that you can try/taste and buy if you wish. Free coffee, nice clean tables and friendly staff...
