Shopping Oji

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Its unfortunate location right next to a pachinko parlour makes this tiny shack a little hard to find, which really is a shame. Ougiya is the authority behind Oji’s local speciality, thick and sweet tamagoyaki (omelette) that’s been made by the company since the mid-17th-century. Their only physical retail outpost carries the the thick yellow slabs in large and small packs, both occasionally selling out before closing time. Although purists may shiver at the thought, this one actually works nicely as a dessert. Note that although the shop occasionally closes without warning, they’re practically never shut for two consecutive days.
