Shijimaya family have been living in the area of Izumino since Edo period, and started their business as merchants since 1875. The merchant culture has handed over beyond generations and still alive. On the other hand, Kanazawa is where the Samurai Culture is rooted in life, too. The Shijimaya-honpo family has also affected by samurai culture since their roots connect with samurai clans. We would appreciate if you could feel the fusion of samurai culture and merchant culture.
