I went to this shop on my way to Oirase Gorge. If you drive to the area, they have a big parking lot and if you take a JR bus, this is the entrance to the gorge.
Inside the shop, they have a nice selection of Aomori souvenirs including local craft beer, which I should have tried. Instead, I had their famous "apple sorbet (though in fact it looks like soft-serve)" and it was delicious! The staff were very friendly and nice too.
Though I did not have time to try this time, in the same building they also have a restaurant that offers various local cuisine too. Overall, a very nice and pleasant place to start a hike to the gorge.
