Informations en français 🇫🇷, cliquez ici.

Hello everyone. My name is Akiko. I’m native Japanese, now living in Switzerland, where I run Japanese cooking classes in French and English (www.theMatchaGreen.com). 

If you like ‘food’, you will love visiting local supermarkets on your travels, as I do!

This is a guided supermarket tour. If you are in central Tokyo during the following period, why not join me and enjoy shopping for groceries and cookware? Getting a taste of ordinary Japanese food at a local supermarket is sure to be fun. On this tour, I will take you to a supermarket in Omori, in Tokyo. 

(If you are in central Tokyo, I can also join you near your place of residence, please feel free to contact me).

SUPERMARKET LOCATIONS

*Please choose one of the two shops below (A or B).

A: Ito-Yokado Omori (large supermarket chains)

  • 7 mins from JR Omori (JK18 JR Keihin-Tohoku line, the second station from JR Shinagawa Station.)
  • 3 min from Omorikaigan (KK07 Keikyu-Main line, direct connection to Haneda Airport.)

There is a food floor and a kitchenware department on the same floor for those who want to see both. Also there is another food glossary shop « KALDI (the website is in Japanese only) » which you can find slightly unusual products. There is a bakery and a popular « Komeda coffee » coffee shop on the same floor that serves light meals (Enjoy Japanese “Bread”!). 

B: Atré Omori (in JR Omori station building, operated by Tokyu store)

  • Directly connected and 1 min from JR Omori station (JK18 JR Keihin-Tohoku line). 

Very convenient, directly connected to the Omori station. Smaller in scale than Ito-Yokado, but surely still enjoyable enough for food shopping. The restaurant floor in the same building is also well stocked, you can enjoy a meal after your tour. There is also small version « KALDI (the website is in Japanese only) » shop in the same building.

Please note, the food floor does NOT have kitchenware; shopping is for food only

*If you would prefer to visit a supermarket near to where you are staying, please contact me to discuss.
