This general store was located in Yama, the Japanese village in Port Blakely, Washington. The store served the Japanese village by providing general merchandise, Japanese goods brought over from Seattle, fresh homemade ice cream, and the only telephone in the village. The store's owner put a piano in the store after it became a community gathering place, and while his daughter played, people pushed the tables and chairs out of the way and danced. Port Blakely is located on the southeast end of Bainbridge Island, Washington.
