After 2 attempts to get into the crowded parking lot on Saturday, my honey and I finally made it to the Mitsuwa Marketplace.
This is a very dangerous place for those saving $$$
I bought a $7 tin of Matcha (it's super tiny
) and a bag of buckwheat tea. My sweetie purchased $20 worth of Japanese beer. I am a complete sucker for Japanese confections, and the candy isle did not disappoint. What was great about the super-small parking lot was that the store itself was not overflowing with people. There was also some fantastic shopping outside of the Food Market itself.
Definately check out Mitsuwa Marketplace. Don't go mid-day on a Saturday if you can help it. I look forward to going back so I can take my time and explore more!
