If you’re a fan of Japanese food (whether it’s cooking it or eating it), then a visit to Japan Centre near Leicester Square is a must.
Due to its popularity, Japan Centre has recently moved to a new location (previously it was near Piccadilly Circus). This new location has a lot more space for sampling tasty Japanese food in a traditional food hall atmosphere. There is more space for you to sit down and dig into your fresh sushi, soup or bento box.
But what if you’re looking for treats to save for later? You can browse aisles of freshly baked pastries and Japanese snacks. Occasionally there are free food demonstrations where you can sample some delicious goodies.
For those talented enough to be able to cook Japanese cuisine at home, there are plenty of cookbooks, ingredients and cookery gift sets to choose from. Don’t pass up the chance to take a cute Hello Kitty dining set to take home!
