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!
Continuing the tour of our London Piccadilly store, the Japan Centre is offering an experience that can only really be appreciated hands on! Throughout the month of October we’ve been offering the public the opportunity to try quality sake and shochu and the chance to discuss it with the manufacturers.
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.
Half Japanese eh? Well, there’s a lot of us around. Japancentre.com houses 2 resident halfies, and we’ve had quite a few who pass through our doors as packaging staff over the years. A nice subtle blend or culture clash!
