NIHON POP CULTURE 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!
Ahh I remember my student days fondly. Lots of parties, lots of drinking and lots of sleeping. Unfortunately though, not a lot of money. This is why Japan Centre is here to help and support you! We know how daunting it can be thinking about how much you have left to spend on proper food instead of that 8p pack of instant noodles or yet another week’s worth of pasta… so we’ve introduced a student discount!
If you like Japanese manga and anime, then you will know that Osamu Tezuka, the “God of manga”, was one of the early pioneers of this exciting Japanese art form. Astro Boy, perhaps his most well known manga has been hugely popular in Japan since its inception in 1952 and often cited as the character that bought manga and anime to the mainstream. It is so popular that Astro Boy was even made into a computer animated Hollywood film in 2009!
Since the Japan Centre food shop moved to a new premises in Regent Street, you may have noticed that there have been some changes to our bookshop. Unfortunately, due to a lack of space, we have been unable to display a large range of our products.
That was before…
