Takei Grocery Store

Takei Grocery Store has been in business since early in the Showa Period. They offer fresh vegetables grown right here in Maniwa City. Their noren have always featured one of the many vegetables found in their shop: lotus roots, eggplants, green peppers and pumpkins in that order. "This charm of this easygoing town is that people can always find somewhere that will make them feel nostalgic," says the owner of the store. Takei Grocery Store wants nothing but the best for their hometown, so the people of Katsuyama feel a close connection with the store and its owner.
