Description

In 1661, the first year of the Kanbun era and the start of the Edo period, our store was founded in Odawara by Gonbei Ejima, an officer at the Hakone checkpoint during the reign of the fourth shogun, Ietsuna Tokugawa. The current owner is the seventeenth generation of the Ejima family. The current building was constructed in 1928 following the destruction of the previous building during the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake, and is characteristic of the traditional dashigeta-zukuri style of architecture used by old Odawara merchants.
The store has a great selection of carefully selected, fragrant Japanese teas, including Fukamushi Sencha (tea that is steamed for longer than usual to produce a less bitter taste) grown in Shizuoka Prefecture’s Kakegawa region, as well as hojicha (roasted green tea), brown rice tea, and Kyoto Uji matcha. We offer nori seaweed from Kyushu’s Ariake Sea, which is well regarded for both home use and as a present. We also handle Japanese craftwork and paper from all over Japan, including brilliantly colored Yuzen paper, teapots and other tea paraphernalia, envelopes for celebratory occasions, and traditional Japanese betrothal gifts. We also have an exhibition of must-see items that tell the history of Japan, including a property ledger and coins from the late Edo period, a deerskin happi coat, tea kettles , and others.
