Recommended antenna shops around Ginza

The Ginza and Yurakucho area is home to many antenna shops, retail stores that specialize in products of the exact regions from all over Japan. In other words, it's a fierce battleground of antenna shops. In this article, we'll introduce a few of our favorite antenna shops.
(Information as of June 2016)

Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza (Hokkaido)

Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza's Yurakucho branch is a popular antenna shop located on the first floor of Tokyo Kotsu Kaikan. There are always about 1,000 delicious items from Hokkaido on display, including seasonal vegetables, seafood, dairy products, specialty sweets, and even items that can only purchase at local Hokkaido supermarkets.

The lineup of soft-serve ice cream that can be lined up in the summer is "vanilla," which is a thick 99.6% dairy product, "Yubari melon," which uses Yubari melon juice, and "mix." If you want to eat soft-serve ice cream in Ginza, we recommend you to go to Hokkaido Dosanko Plaza.

The Hakata (Fukuoka)

Located on the basement floor of Tokyo Kotsu Kaikan, The Hakata. It's a rare antenna shop for Hakata, rather than Fukuoka Prefecture itself, but it does in fact carry some of Fukuoka's best products. It's a great place to learn about the history and culture of Fukuoka Prefecture.

Recently, "Yamaya no Umadashi Soup Can" in a short can made by Yamaya, who is famous for spicy cod roe, has become a hot topic. It seems interesting to go and find something different from usual products.
