Founded in the late Edo period (1603-1867), Yamaichi is one of the ten oldest shops in Nishiki Market.
“We continue to serve traditional, delicious, seasonal dishes such as our grilled hamo (pike conger eel), which is made by a special cutting technique using high-quality hamo from the Seto Inland Sea and immediately grilling it with our homemade sauce, and our dried codfish rehydrated in the groundwater of Nishiki Market, keeping the flavors of the good old days,” the owner says.

“I am the sixth-generation owner, and until my grandfather's generation, we ran a catering business. Now, 90% of our products are salted dried fish. There’s cod, herring, the rare dried herring roe, flounder with roe, and more. Products made by processing these are also available.”

”If you come several times, we will know your preferences, so we can give you what you want without you having to say anything.”
The grilled pike conger eel and the herring rolled in kombu are excellent. During the New Year's holidays, many people come to the shop for their gomame (roasted and candied sardines).
