Nanpo Tometaro Shoten/ Kunseiya (南保留太郎商店 燻製屋)| Smoked Food Shop | Yoichi (余市)

There is a unique shop in Yoichi (余市).
Look at "Nanpo Tometaro Shoten/ Kunseiya (南保留太郎商店 燻製屋)", a very popular smoked food shop in this area.

One of my favorite ones is smoked deep-water shrimps (甘えび燻製)↓ Yummy x 2!!!

How about smoked coffee beans?
Actually we went to their cafe next to this shop after this, and enjoyed iced smoked coffee there!

Don't forget smoked Ovalipes punctatus (平蟹の燻製). This is super-super delicious!!! Usually they are sold out before noon! Be careful!!

They have smoked vegetables and tofu, too. Amazing, isn't it?

I really recommend this smoked food shop! After that, we went to a restaurant using these smoked products. Are you interested in the restaurant? Please refer to my other post→.

When I came back to a parking lot, I found this art work..........
