      I live in San Jose, most of my local supermarkets sell dashi.

      Ajinomoto: Hon Dashi, ~2 oz jar
      Kikkoman Memmi, 10-16oz bottles
      Shimaya Bonito Flavored Soup Stock, 10 bag box
      Shimaya Dashino-moto, 5 bag box
      Yamaki Dashi no moto, 5 bag box.

      I have also used Knorr's Fish Stock cubes.

        Where are you? Try Tokyo fish market on San Pablo in Berkeley just North of Gilman. Ranch 99 in El Cerrito - mostly Chinese food but should have it. the kind that looks like large tea bag is better than the stuff you dump directly in the water. I use HIME brand. Most of the dashi has MSG.

          I was thinking of the HIME brand dried soups stock called Dashi no Moto. this is good for clear soup. doesn't have soy sauce in it. But has MSG.
          The liquid ones like Kikkoman Memmi are for udon. Has more of a soy sauce taste to it.
