Yes, the fifth Japan Food Festival (JAFF) is now here! From the 10th – 30th June online at Japancentre.com and at our Regent Street store we are showcasing regional produce from the Hokuriku region in northwest Japan in collaboration with the Hokuriku Bank.
Not only will this be a chance to try exclusive produce never before sold in the UK, we will also be showcasing these regional specialities, such as miso, ramen and sake in free tastings every day from 2:30pm at our Regent Street store.
If you’re not based in London, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out! All the tasty treats being showcased in JAFF: Hokuriku are now available online at Japancentre.com. You can also check out all the delicious offerings out in our JAFF: Hokuriku leaflet.
Specially selected to represent the best and most delicious of Hokuriku fare, each of our producers participating in the fair offer a unique taste of the region. Let’s introduce them below!
Always find yourself trudging back from the shops with heavy bags of rice? Forget to buy rice in the first place? We’ve all been there, I’m sure. Well, worry no more – Japancentre.com has launched a new service aimed at taking the stress away from the monthly trip to the shops for UK mainland customers.
The idea is to order a 6-month subscription to a bag of rice, and we’ll take care of the work and send you your rice every month on the same day! Plus, by participating, you’ll save on a whole bag of rice! Couldn’t be better, right? Wrong – if you order now, we’ll throw in FREE SHIPPING as well!

The first time I ever tried soba noodles, what I really ended up with was a glue-like mess. I had seen the delicious looking package on the shelf and decided, “Yeah! I’m going to make that!” Of course what I did when I got home (finding no decipherable English instructions on the packet) was to stick them the whole packet in about 2cm of water (in a kettle no less) and forget about them boiling away until roughly half an hour after they had changed from scrumptious noodles to grey gloop.
