If you read Japanese there is a terrific forum for Japanese expats living in Spain, here. (スペイン探偵局)

There is a Japonica rice that is grown in Spain, called “Minori”, produced by Okura Y Asociados Products, S.A. Web site. (But it has no contact info! Geez.)

Switzerland

General Switzerland notes: The biggest Japanese expat community is in Geneva. You can also increasingly buy some Japanese ingredients at the department stores (esp. Globus). Migros and Coop both carry a few Japanese/Asian (mostly Thai) products.

In the last 5-6 years, there has been an explosion (well in Swiss terms) of “Asian” restaurants in the major cities. Quality and authenticity varies. Most serve some form of sushi.

Zürich

General Zürich notes: There are quite a few Thai grocery stores. Migros City’s fish department is pretty good for fresh fish. Increasingly, the morning markets are carrying Asian vegetables - in particular the Helvetiaplatz market and the Bürkliplatz market. At the latter, I’ve spotted things like shiso plants and fresh yuzu!

Europe-only mail order sites

Many places with web sites listed will ship to you within Europe, or at least within the same country. Visit the sites and find out!

  • Japan Centre ships all over Europe. This page lists the countries to which they will ship food. Shipping is free within the UK over £30 worth of merchandise. They ship non-comestibles worldwide. In my experience, their shipping is expensive but very fast. Excellent service. In Switzerland at least the price including shipping is about the same as buying locally, so it’s handy for stuff that the local stores don’t stock.(maki) Recently teamed up with the 100 yen shop chain Daiso. Disclaimer: Japan Centre is a premium sponsor of Just Hungry, and we’re very happy to have them - we were happy customers of theirs way before they became a sponsor.
  • Ja-Mart is based in Germany and also states on their web site (which is in German, English and Japanese) that they ship to various countries in Europe. Besides food, they sell kitchenware, tableware, etc. including some 220V electrical appliances such as Zojirushi rice cookers.
  • Wai yee Hong is a Chinese supermarket in Bristol, UK. They will ship all over Europe.

basel japanese shop

There is a great japanese shop in Basel called mikado, the address Gartenstrasse 59, which is quite close to the main trainstation. It is run by a Japanese lady and apart from a great selection of food, some dishes etc you can also enjoy home cooked lunches there. And the nice thing is that they are very reasonable and friendly

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Just to add a few more for Amsterdam:

Japans Winkel Dank
Kastelenstraat 264
1082 EJ Amsterdam, Netherlands
+31 20 6464587

  • A bit far from the center, located in Amstelveen which is about 20-30 minutes south. Has a good selection of curries, sauces, and fresh produce. A bit more expensive than Shilla’s but more selection. Also has a video section. Across from a good Bento lunch spot.

Toko Dun Yong

1012 BD Amsterdam
the Netherlands
+31-(0)20-6221763
+31-(0)20-6267513

http://www.dunyong.com/
Monday through Saturday 9:00 - 18:00
Sunday 12:00 - 18:00

  • Located in the heart of Chinatown. Selection of Japanese products mixed in with mostly Chinese and Thai ingredients. Fresh tofu, frozen seafood, nabe stuff - more expensive than Shilla’s or Dank.
vivotyx | 12 March, 2008 - 08:22

Dank

Dank is not located in Amstelveen, but in Amsterdam, in an area called Builtenveldert. However, it is probably closer to Amstelveen centre than it is to the centre of Amsterdam.

Located in Amstelveen, near Amsterdam, is Iseya. They sell sushi and almost any ingredient you'll ever need for your Japanese recipes. If I remember correctly they even sell rice cookers.

Casa Chinesa - Porto

Not worth it.

I read many nice things about this store, but as I entered to see their selection, the attitude was horribly different. I was immediately followed and watched by some grim, old employee who was constantly very close and, many times, in my direct way. This is the most ridiculous behavior that I have even seen in shop in Portugal.

Prospective clients should be treated with respect and not suspicion. I am someone living between Paris, Porto and Bangkok, well-dressed, and I was frankly shocked by the bad attitude in this shop.

A lost potential client.

What Japanese foods do they stock at El Corte Inglès?

Isn’t it just a few sushi items? (Rice, vinegar, nori, perhaps gari and wasabi)
Or do the Portuguese Corte Inglès stores stock more than their Spanish equivalents?

Loretta | 13 May, 2008 - 11:46

Japonese products at El Corte Inglès Lisboa

Hi Loretta at Lisbon’s El Corte Inglès there are at least 56 different grocery products and also beer, salt, seaweeds, liquor, dried fruits and tea. You can check what products there are in http://www.elcorteingles.pt/supermercado/frameset.asp.

Aarhus, Denmark

Living in Aarhus, far from Copenhagen where most Japanese-centered shops are, I still found this one worth mentioning. Everytime I go in there they’ve added something new Japanese:

Far East Trading
Banegårdsgade 36-38
8000 Århus C
Telephone: 86 18 18 69
Website: http://far-east-trading.dk (all in Danish)

Among the more hard-to-find items they carry are: katsuobushi, kombu, wakame and GOOD soba noodles (not to mention many kinds of Japonica rice)

dracuella | 21 June, 2008 - 09:25

New (?) product line in Sweden.

There’s a seemingly new product line that has started to show up on shelves in several stores here in Sweden lately. Renée Voltaire has a couple of japanese items like Furikake (something I’ve never seen in regular stores here before), green tea, udon and soba etc.

As said it has started to show up in regular stores but you can also order directly from their homepage over at:

http://www.reneevoltaire.se/Produkter/

I just thought it was worth mentioning.

Sevilla, Spain

Hiper Oriente I
Calle Aponte 8
(by Plaza del Duque)
tlf: +34 954 915 943

Hiper Oriente II
Avda. Kansas City 1-3
(in the Nervion zone, betwen El corte ingles and Santa Justa train station)

They’re both owned by the same family, who also owns a restaurant by the first one,and you’ll find food, drinks and tableware, as well as chinese and a few japanese magazines, newspapers, DVD’s and books. There’s also a frozen food section where you can find fish, vegetables and already made dim sum and similars. They store a large number of products which include indian, tailand, japanese and chinese stuff. But depending on what you’re looking for, you should visit one or other. The first one has more japanese things, from onigiri molds to several types of miso paste and tofu. The second has a huge section of noodles, as well as katsuo-bushi and wasabi powder large size bags.

About the staff, sometimes it’s a bit hard to make yourself understand since most of them are chinese and don’t speak a fluent Spanish (or don’t speak it at all).

Wasabi in Basel

hi, i have an update on the Wasabi in basel. i went there the other day to check if they're still there and if they sell bento boxes; so they actually are still in business and they carry a few japanese tableware and craft items. they don't have any bento boxes at the moment, but whenever they go to japan they bring back some. next time they'll go will be november or december 2011. they said the bento boxes they bring usually sell out pretty fast. hope this helps!

Aggarwal grocery moved to Kernstrasse

Aggarwal grocery moved to Kernstrasse (next street) towards Migros Wengihof (Kalkbreite). New Asia Market is close by too.

At Aggarwal Langstrasse they only left the restaurant part. They used the empty space put some tables and chairs.

Btw, Tamil shops are around Röntgenplatz. I have no idea, how much Japanese food they offer.

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Austria

some more shops in vienna, austria:

next to the nippon-ya mentioned above is a store called
"cha no ma" located in faulmanngasse 7, 1040 wien.

it offers green tea in all kinds one can imagine, not only tealeaves and matchapowder, but you can also consume wonderful matcha (in all kinds), greentea sweets and about 12 different sorts of onigiri there.

another one is the "nakwon" (it has not only japanese, but all sorts of asian food and a GIANT range of goods), there are 2 stores in vienna:
one is in zieglergasse 12, 1070 wien
the other one in rotensterngasse 31, 1020 wien.

"yip hint" (run by vietnamese people afaik, but they don't only offer vietnamese things) also has two stores in vienna. they are not as big as nakwon (which is REALLY big. i have been to the yip hint in neulerchenfelderstraße only, perhaps the 2nd is bigger.), but they offer some things i haven't found elsewhere and seem to import the majority of things brought to austria from asia.
neulerchenfelderstraße 32, 1160 wien.
the other one is in favoritenstraße 178 in 1100 wien.

many warm greetings from vienna! :)

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Europe

I'm interested in the Takuhai website in The Netherlands, but cannot acces it. I'm asked for a username and password. What am I doing wrong???

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Europe

Maybe their site is just down. (Just Hungry is not associated with any of the stores listed so beyond that I can't really say what is wrong with their site)

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Portugal

Hi,

Does anyone know if the Exotic Asia Market in Lisbon is still in business? I can't seem to find it on google maps and the website's not working.

Many thanks!

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Europe

Hi Maki,

sorry to bother you again, but the link to ja-mart in Germany does not work. Do they still exist and would that be an alternative to buying at japan centre when living in France? I think the link of japan centre leads somewhere else. Maybe you cab check.

Thank you!
Julie

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Europe

These guys do some fantastic Japanese fusion food: http://www.mallorcacatering.net - they are based in Portals Nous, in Mallorca (Majorca), not too far from Palma. Well worth a visit.

Re: Japanese grocery stores in Europe

We recently visited samba sushi in London - they did some amazing things with whipped cream and wasabi... Need a whipper (http://www.cream-chargers.org) but its worth going to the trouble if you want to produce something a little more 'out there' at your next event...
