You see many grain storage buildings, non combustible, throughout Japan, but this one really catches you attention. It is on the opposite end of town from the samurai houses.

This brewery which is responsible for the production of artisanal soy sauce and miso is a treasure house of Japanese ingredients. There are many things you can taste and we didn't encounter anywhere better than this on this trip to buy some special cooking ingredients to take back to Australia. The well maintained and original Tatami room which you are free to enter (shoes off of course) gives some insight into life in the shop during a long part of its history. There is a small café where some food and drinks are available towards the rear of the shop. This is well worth the walk from the Samurai area as you will encounter unique regional ingredients you are unlikely to encounter anywhere else.

I knew that the brewery was historic, but there are several rooms that are historically preserved when the place was built. Plus free tasting! A bit off the beaten path (i.e., away from the samurai houses) but an interesting part of town if you have the time to wander these parts.

This very old building where they still make miso and soy sauce the traditional way without additives. They have a variety of each products and samples to try - they all taste very different from one another and I can see why people would have a favorite. There was an area to display artwork, textiles and figurines from the previous generations of the owners - a one room museum if you will as well as screen painting and flower arrangements. There is also a shop with the different misos and sauces and pickled vegetables available for purchase - it was quite busy! We had tea and some pickled vegetables sat in their little sampling room before going on with our walk to see more sakura.

This shop is the one of historical houses in Kakunodate. It was built in Meiji era, more than 100 years before. They make and sell traditional Japanese seasoning like "miso" soy paste, "syoyu" soy sauce for nearly 170 years. Here you enjoy not only old Japanese style of warehouse and office which a prosperous merchant family owned but also souvenir shopping. Now their old warehouses are special room for family ceremonial functions and rest space for customers. If you love Japanese food, I strongly recommend "Shiro dashi" soup. You can have a taste here. Syoyu ice cream is also nice. 醸されたお土産を買うなら、ここが一番。明治中期に建てられた蔵座敷や、商家の日常生活が想像できる和室など、角館らしい佇まいも楽しめて一石二鳥です。 秋田空港直行のエアポートライナーを利用するなら、経由地なので帰路も便利です。
