Missing some Japanese goods that you bought when you were in Japan? It's probably still a long time to go until your next trip. But no worries, you can have those Japanese instant food and cool souvenirs in these 5 outlets:
1. Midtown Mart
The store brings more than 1000 products at affordable price. Of course, various products they sell (ranging from confectioneries to household items) are mainly Japanese products.
Originally, Midtown Mart is established by a Japanese supermarket in Japan, called Daikoku. Daikoku started in 1988, but now has 80 supermarkets in Japan. They opened a branch in Singapore with the same vision, which is providing affordable price for its consumers. No wonder, we can now enjoy their promotion of 5% coupon during weekdays!
Marina Square 6 Raffles Boulevard #03-130A Singapore 039594 Opening hours: 11.00am - 9.30pm
2. Don Don Donki
A non-stop Japanese discount store. Don Quijote, the Japanese retailer, owns Don Don Donki. They claim they are the Japan Discount King.
Don Don Donki sells quality products with interesting discounts. Since they opened their branch in Singapore, we can see it's quite crowded. Plus, we can't get rid of their theme song in our head!
But, the best thing about Don Don Donki is that they open 24 hours. So, anytime you want Japanese goods, just go there.

Just like its name, you can guess that the store has a wide range of Japanese products. Ranging from dry, chilled to frozen products.
You can also buy your cooking needs in here as well. If you don't want to be busy in the kitchen, simply buy Japanese snacks and confectionery. J-Mart is apparently well stocked with the latest Japanese sweets and snacks!
J-Mart is also the primary retailer of the Japan Prestige Sake Association. Thus, you can get premium and hand-brewed Japanese sake. Good news is, they sell sake at affordable price! And their third branch is coming soon at Century Square.

4. Yamakawa Super
Get the Japanese goods that you want in here. The store is owned by Japanese Kikkoman Corporation and operated by JFC Singapore. The Japanese specialty grocery store sells some exclusive items that we can't find anywhere else in Singapore!
Find plenty of Japanese chocolates, ice creams, biscuits, candies, milk, soft drink, sauces, and cup noodles in here. Yamakawa Super is also one of the best places to discover seasonal produce. For instance, they sell strawberry items from winter to early spring, and green tea items throughout summer. We can enjoy the flavours of the four seasons of Japan now, thanks to them.
Last but not least, Yamakawa Super is basically a grocery store. Thus, we can get fresh items, because they renew their stocks on a weekly basis.
