Multipurpose sauce "Ajidorakunosato"(made by Tohoku Shoyu, Daisen city)

This mixture of dashi like soy sauce is very popular in Akita.

It is useful for cooking.


Traditional seasoning “Shottsuru”

Shottsuru is a fish sauce made of sailfin sandfish “Hatahata” and salt etc, made in Akita.

It is very salty but tasty, so I use one little bit for cooking.


The information is as of April 17th 2017.

Convenience store with vast parking lots

In Akita, or maybe rural areas in all Japan, we see the convenience stores having parking lots many cars also large trucks can park in.

I was surprised at first, because urban shops often have no parking space.
