Fodor's Review

Among the many bark shops in town, this one offers the best selection and prices, from ¥300 for a shoehorn to ¥10,000 for a small chest. Cherry-bark tea canisters can also hold ground coffee and make good souvenirs. If you are a bargain hunter, take a look in the basket near the entrance; seconds or products in mint condition with no boxes are sold sometimes 50% off there. You can observe how the crafts are made in its Center 2 shop near Denshōkan Workshop.
