All about countryside shopping

There is no shop in the walking distance

We will stop by a supermarket on the way home from the station where you will be picked up. You could buy there almost anything you might want, but you might prefer to ride a bicycle for half an hour through the forest to the nearest convenience store or go for a shopping adventure.
Even shopping is a fun activity in the countryside.

Where you can find food

The nearest convenience store

Lawson is the nearest konbini (convenience store) from Ottobatake house, 30 minutes by bike ride through the forest.
You can buy almost everything for your basic supply, from milk to toothbrush.

6.6km from BAKKE
On the same row, there is a small restaurant for light meals, such as Ramen.

Wander around in used-to-be "Town" for food

The town was a busy place in its old good days, with many shops and people hanging around.
There remain some stores run by the owner, such as sake shops, grocery stores and a florist. There is even a barbershop.
You might find here something more intriguing than food.

vegetables made and sold by locals in Rinrinkan


In Rinrinkan, you can find ready-made food prepared by local people, such as  side dishes you eat with rice or mochi with different kinds of flavors. You also find some gadgets crafted locally. Fresh vegetables from neighboring fields are, of course, on the racks. Stickers on the package show who made them. The farmers are very proud to sell their products here rather than on a whole sale market, anonymously. In the back corner, you can have a light lunch.
