I went to Mitsuwa in San Jose with my husband and some friends last weekend. Its great! Mitsuwa is the largest Japanese marketplace in the U.S. There’s lots and lots of Japanese goodies there. Within Mitsuwa, there’s also a sweets/dessert shop called Mochicream. I’ll write about it more in my next post.
I love all the random small goodies that is found in Mitsuwa especially the Hello Kitty ones. =) It’s definitely worth a trip there. Right when we walked in, there’s a small strawberry section in front of us. Its full of small snacks, chocolates, cookies, candies and its all strawberry flavored. I picked out some strawberry pocky as it was cheaper than in normal stores.
We also went on a snacks shopping spree and bought a some melon pan, coffee soy milk, mochi, snacks, ramen etc. There’s also a restaurant inside the marketplace but I forgot what the name is.
All I remember was that there’s a really long line of people waiting to get in. Outside, there’s also a cart selling hot roasted chestnuts that looked so good. I’ll definitely go back there again in the near future and maybe try out the restaurant there next time.
