    This Nijiya market is a tad bit small compared to the others I've seen in California, but you can still find most everything you'd want from Japan. The snack/candy selection is impressive for a store this size!

    I love to buy Bento here because it taste great and the price is reasonable. I recommend Katsu-Don and Chuka-Don for lunch.

    I love coming to Nijiya for their bento boxes up front. Whenever I have a craving for sushi, this is the most affordable place to fill that need. The construction may not be as great as an actual sushi restaurant, but the prices and ingredient quality are quite good. They often use organic rice in their prepared food items.

    The grocery store itself is also nice, though it's not the cheapest place to buy food. If you're looking for Japanese products, however, it's a great place to check out.

    I went once to buy about 100 nicely wrapped boxes of traditional Japanese crackers (for a work event). They were patient with me and helped me put the crackers in bigger boxes so I could transport them easily. They then helped me call a cab, lug the boxes out to the sidewalk and get me into the cab with all the boxes. That's what I call customer service!

    A wide selection of ready-made meals and sushi of all shapes and sizes temps you as you enter this Japanese supermarket. If you're hungry it will be hard to get past this section. If you do, there is a wonderful assortment of different Japanese groceries, from the typical snacks to a dizzying array of ingredients to create your own Japanese feast. The whole spectrum of Japanese cuisine is available, from rows of ramen-making kits to the fresh grape, strawberry and green tea mochi in the front. There is also fresh produce available.

    Did you recently discover your new-found love for Japanese candies, snacks, desserts, and drinks? Check Nijiya out!

    They have a wide variety of things, starting from bento boxes, sake, Japanese beers, milk teas/teas, varieties of rice, sushi/sashimi, ramen, fruit, dairy, and EVEN - makeup/hair dye from Japan.

    The candy aisle is pretty sweet. They have so many pocky flavours. They also have a whole rice section which was pretty amazing. There are some high-end types of rice that cost $30-$40/pack.

    I usually get Japanese snacks and chocolates, and sometimes miso.

    It is a little more expensive than your average supermarket though..The milk tea that I see in Chinese supermarkets is always 99 cents -1 dollar, it's about $5 here.

    Great spot for your Asian buys!

    This place is so funny. There was this mayonnaise looking product being sold and I think it was called "kewpie"....kekekekeke

    All joking aside..I second the entire cheap raw stuff here....the salmon and the tuna is pretty good. Oddly enough I have had better at another store.....or my taste buds have just gone to sh*t....either which way I like the salmon sashimi there along with some of the rice bowls. Everything else...I just haven't spent enough time to try everything there. They also have these small toy statuette things... I LOVE THOSE....I break them all the time because I'm a klutz....but I love those things...
    ;D
