  • A day in Japan, without leaving London

    One of the best things about living in London is that you can escape a while to a different country. Here's my guide to going to Japan-in-London.

    3

    Food & Drink

    Books and magazines in Japanese and a small selection in English.

  • Itadakizen

    4

    Japanese

    Japanese vegan food. This is the place to bring veggie and vegan friends AND still have a good meal.

  • Yaki

    5

    Japanese

    For Japanese fast-food on the go. Quality is so-so. The tai-yaki are baked fresh in front of you and are a good buy.

  • Roka

    6

    Japanese

    More rock and roll Japanese food. High end, not cheap and buzzing.

  • Minamoto Kitchoan Japanese Confectionary

    7

    Desserts

    For all your Japanese confectionary needs. Lovely jelly candies and mochi. Let the lovely staff advise you if you're wondering what to buy.

  • BAPE

    Boutique

    For the super-super trendy. Clothes. I'm scared to go in, but it is proper Japanese.

  • Muji

    9

    Furniture / Home

    Japanese stationery, clothing, furniture and housewares. Multiple shops in London, this is my favourite.

  • Bone Daddies

    10

    Ramen

    A modern and western style of ramen, rock and roll baby!

  • Abeno Too

    11

    Okonomiyaki

    Okonomiyaki is part-omelette, part-pancake and 100% delicious! There's two restaurants: this one and one on Museum Street. Recommended!

  • Tokyo Toys

    12

    Toys & Games

    For all your manga and kawaii toy needs. Based in a touristy, trashy mall just off Piccadilly Circus, don't let that put you off.

  • Shoryu Ramen

    13

    Ramen

    Lovely ramen restaurant smack in the middle of London. My favourite is the Karaka TanTan Noodles. Also have a restaurant on Lower Regent Street.

  • Koya

    14

    Noodles

    Lovely Udon restaurant, where noodles are made on site. Keep an eye out for the specials.

  • Japan Centre

    15

    Food & Drink

    THE place to get Japanese groceries in central London. Also has takeaway food. My favourites: melon pan pastries.
