Japan Village is its own stand-alone food court, with about 12 different vendors selling things like sushi, ramen, onigiri, and karaage. We especially like the udon here, and we also enjoy hanging out at the bar and drinking sake while we stare at Sunset Mart across the way and think about the stuff we don’t really need but are going to buy regardless. Just pick a spot, order some food, and find yourself a table.
