If you look for the shop to buy souveniors for your family and friends, I recommend “Imari” in Aikawa.
There are lots of handicrafts made by local artists and craftmen/craftwomen.
Some are used by local people in everyday life here.
The bamboo crafts welcome you.
This is hats made of braided straw, and local people dance with them at local festival.
You can enjoy the refreshing scent of grass/rush, and it could be a good interior.
This is small Tarai Boat, which is used in Ogi area to get seaweed or shells.
When you throw a party at your place, you can put some drink including Sake and wine and ice in this small tub.
For the coffee and tea lovers, this would be a good souvenir, too.
And wine glass for the wine lovers.
These are ceramics/potteries made of special red cray called “Mumyoi”, which you can get only in SADO Island.
If you make a reservation, you can made your original pottery here under local potter’s instruction, too.
These sandals are made of bamboo skin, and the more you wear them, the more they get colors, shiny and softer.
