My wife and I spent a summer in Japan several years ago to visit friends who had moved there and when I come to Mitsuwa, it reminds me of the grocery stores in Japan. We were introduced to a lot of Japanese dishes and now when it's Japanese food night, we come here to get our food supplies. I really like the quality of rice you can find here, compared to the white rice you find at the local grocery chains. Yes, prices for most of the items you're going to buy are going to be kind of expensive but I think it's worth it. The store is clean and we're always finding new things to try when we cruise down each aisle. I wish there were more english translations though, as sometimes, we skip over things since we don't know what they are, lol.
