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!
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.
Cold nights mean that treats are needed! Why not try a tasty Japanese instant ramen, some cute mushroom shaped biscuits or instant rice to warm you up!
There are also over 80 items back in stock so look through the site to find your favourites.
The first flush of green tea of 2008, is in stock at Japan Centre London and online at http://www.japancentre.com now! Shincha (新茶) which means “new tea” is the pickings of only the youngest tips of the tea bush, and has a really clean and fresh taste.
