For those of you who like to leave buying presents until the last minute or who simply want to come to Japan Centre during the holiday period, here are our opening times around Christmas and New Year…
It’s that time of year again! No, not Christmas…it’s that time when Japanese people pound mochi rice cakes with big wooden mallets. Confused? Read on!
With Christmas just around the corner there is no better time to start thinking about presents! We’ll even let you get away with thinking about gifts for yourself…
Raise your hand if you know we’ve expanded! Well, it seems that some of you out there need to come to Japan Centre more often! We’re now situated at 212-213 Piccadilly, taking over the premises next door to offer you a larger, better stocked JC.
In the coming weeks we’ll be showing you more of what we offer in our London Piccadilly store. Stuff we just can’t send Online, but think makes us a pretty unique slice of Japan in the UK. This first post in the series gives you an introduction to our (seriously delicious!) handmade in store Japanese confectionery and bakery items.
For all of those Edamame and Natto fans out there (maybe less natto than edamame!) don’t forget Japan Centre Piccadilly stocks both of these items in their freezer section.
After a long wait, the new crop of Okura Minori Rice (Akita Komachi) is now available in store and online, with the troubles surrounding their last crop long behind them.
