where to get nigari(magnesium chloride)for tofu in east bay?

does anyone know anywhere in the east bay that carries nigari, the coagulant used for making tofu? ranch99 in richmond doesn't(at least that's what they said on the phone). i can order it from amazon but i'd rather buy it locally.

thanks. dj

  1. I think my relative found it at Yaoya-San in El Cerrito (in the Jay Vee Center).

      1. thanks for the replies. so far & for future reference: tokyo fish does NOT have it but yaoya-san does. thanks again.

        1. This isn't exactly East Bay, but I've seen it at Mitsuwa in San Jose. I'm guessing that similar Japanese markets would have it too.

          1. Rainbow Grocery has it (also, obviously not east bay)
