The last time I featured Nippon-Ya was a few days before the big quake hit Japan. I bought takoyaki and some bentou accessories and we were with Kuya O (my scholar friend) and an aunt then.
I love this little shop even if I would often get lost looking for it. Now, I exactly know where it is and I can come any time I want. It's a shop alright...but I like hanging out here because this is the closest I can get to anything Japanese. The cashier is now a friend when before she was a bit hesitant...she would almost always talk to me in Japanese and I would scour my head for the little Nihongo I know...My kids also love it there, we find the cutest stuff and our favorite Japanese treats!
