Founded in 1998, Mitsuwa Marketplace is an excellent Japanese supermarket with 11 locations across the country - six of which are here in Southern California. That said, to call Mitsuwa just a supermarket is frankly underselling it. Along with an astounding array of Japanese dried goods, sauces, meats, and pre-packaged sushi boxes, you’ll also find book stores, cosmetic counters, and an entirely separate food court with stalls selling everything from Japanese donuts to some of the best ramen in LA.
