Ejima

Established in 1661. It is a long-established store which has sold Japanese tea, nori, and Japanese paper since the beginning of the Edo period. With its characteristic dasihgeta-zukuri, or overhanging eaves, an air of elegance wafts from the shop, which was built in the early Showa period. Nearly 90% of the tea they carry is deep-steamed green tea from Kakegawa in Shizuoka prefecture, but they also carry carefully-selected, richly scented Japanese teas including roasted green tea, brown rice tea, and powdered green tea from Uji in Kyoto. They also carry a wide range of vivid Japanese paper, colored paper, and Japanese handicrafts from all over Japan which make perfect souvenirs for taking overseas. Inside, in the "Odawara Street Corner Museum", ledgers from the Edo period and leather happi coat​s which were distributed at the time the shop was built (1928) are displayed on each supporting beam.
