Westfield Pop Up


There’s some pretty cool things going on at umai by Japan Centre Westfield Stratford City. Our second stand alone store located in the bustling Westfield mall houses all your favourite Japan Centre goodies as well as a special central umai deli area where you can pick up fresh sashimi and sushi, hot from the pan tempura and of course our latest Japanese burgers!

Every month Japan Centre publishes its in-store magazine called Japan Centre Circle. Packed full of Japanese insights and food tips, as well as a monthly recipe, voucher and upcoming event details, it’s a great way to keep up to date with all things Japanese from your favourite Japanese food hall and it’s free too! This week we’ve syndicated our popular Staff Review column so that those of you not able to visit one of our stores can get the chance to read a bit of what Japan Centre Circle is all about. We’ll try to get downloadable versions of the magazine up on www.japancentre.com for you soon.
To many people Japan Centre is the busy food shop and Japanese deli counter in the centre of  Piccadilly Circus, but to the Online Team our home is a bustling warehouse in North Acton. It’s here we update our website, prepare and send out all of the online orders we receive, as well as bake the delicious Japanese bread for the bakery and deliver products to our stores. It’s also where we taste test. Taste testing is a lengthy but (as you can imagine) enjoyable job, so we thought we’d let you guys have a little look at how we bring the best of Japan to you.
