Japan Centre Group

Japan Centre began life in 1976 with a suitcase full of Japanese books and an idea to cater for the community of Japanese people living in London. A further desire to help bridge the gap between the contrasting cultures of Japan and the UK led to its first premises opening in 1980 as a bookshop and martial arts equipment store on London’s Brewer Street. Japan Centre has since grown to become one of the largest and most influential Japanese shops in London, adding a supermarket, bakery, deli, restaurant, homeware department and online service to its repertoire. Japan Centre has a diverse range of services for Japanese living in the UK & Europe, and for those simply interested in the exciting world of Japanese food and culture. • Food Hall • Books & Magazines • Homeware • Online Shopping • Bakery • Fish & Meat Counter • umai Delicatessen • Shoryu Ramen • Acton Wholesale • Recruitment Agency
