Onagawa Factory is gift shop selling tasteful and practical items carved by house artisans from local woods. The main wood varieties used are Sendai zelkova, Hirose ginko, and Ishinomaki cherry. The cutting boards are particularly covetable, while the chopsticks and key chains are affordable enough to purchase as souvenirs for friends and family back home. Most pieces in the shop can be customized with a name or message using the shop’s laser etching machine.
The shop also carries an exclusive cheesecake made with salt harvested from the waters surrounding nearby holy island Kinkasan. Sold in small slices, it makes a delectable snack.
