This specialist shop deals in premium salt – yes, just salt, and lots and lots of different types of it. Ma-suya’s walls are stacked full of salt from its home base of Okinawa as well as other regions in Japan. You’ll also find some top-notch sodium chloride from France and several other countries.
You can taste everything before making a purchase, or just let the ‘salt sommelier’ help you with an informed recommendation. Don’t leave without ordering a salt-based soft serve ice cream; it’s far more palatable than it sounds. The milky dessert is the perfect base for sampling some of the store’s best-selling salts – so test your tastebuds and sprinkle on salts seasoned with cocoa, yuzu and wasabi.
