It happens to the best of us. You’ve planned your trip, you’re all excited and ready to binge on sushi.
You arrive in Japan and everything is fine. Then the cravings set in. Australians can find themselves dizzy and confused without their morning Vegemite. The French may find themselves disdaining âbreadâ. And those looking for halal and vegan options may see their choices dwindle.
However, fear not. Below, we’ve outlined the best and brightest international grocery stores in Tokyo. If you’re looking for a taste of home, we’ve got you covered. Here’s where to find your favorite foreign imports in Japan.
CafÃ© Kaldi: the most convenient international grocery store in Tokyo
In terms of convenience, Kaldi Coffee Farm is the big winner. Its locations span all of Tokyo and are often within walking distance of major train stations.
The store also offers everyone who walks a free paper cup of coffee. So you know. If you see one, go get that cafe. Aside from an impressive coffee section, the store is all about foreign imports.
It is pleasantly full of international food products from a wide range of countries. That said, the pitches are often small. As a result, they focus more on non-perishable items and seasonal treats. However, there is a humble (but hardworking) cheese and deli section in most stores. Don’t hesitate to come if that’s what you want.
Name: Kaldi Coffee Farm, Shinjuku (many other places)
Address: 1-5-1 Odakyu Department Store, BF2, Nishinjuku, Shinjuku, Tokyo 160-0023
