Aichi Prefecture’s antenna shop

Pipitto! Aichi

This shop discovers excellent specialties from areas in Aichi Prefecture (Nagoya, Higashi-Owari, Nishi-Owari, Chita, Higashi-Mikawa, Nishi-Mikawa, and Toyota), and offers them through over-the-counter sales.

They deal in commodities such as fresh vegetables from areas in the prefecture as well as various processed items (such as fish, meat, sweets, seasonings, drinks, dried food, tsukudani [a preserved food boiled down in sweetened soy sauce], rice, tsukemono [Japanese pickles], local sake, and daily foods). Equipped with a travel brochure section, the shop also conveys tourist information.

Also, the shop periodically holds shop-front events and in-shop planning and sales in order to continually revitalize itself and to advertise Aichi’s excellent specialties.
