Japan's oldest department store has a US outpost in Ala Moana Shopping Center . The store features two floors of high-quality Oriental goods, upscale electronics, accessories, fine jewelry and handbags, Sanrio toys and Japanese housewares. There is also a grocery section with a large selection of delicacies imported from Japan. Nearby, a bustling cafeteria serves sushi, noodle dishes and typical Japanese box lunches. There are other Shirokiya locations in Aiea and on Maui.
Wow, this place is fantastic! From a person who has sushi a couple of minimum of a couple times a month and my nearby restaurant who delivers on my cell & home phone's speed dial, all I have to say is bravo!
My sister and I tripped upon this place when we were visiting my other sister at a nearby restaurant. She was flown in from Maui, and that's how we know of Shirokiya actually, from their previous Maui location. Sadly that place in closed now :(
About this place though, they have food. Tons of food that will put any food court into shame! The sashimi and sushi were so fresh, you'd think you died and ended-up at an authentic Japanese restaurant somewhere in some Prefecture in Japan, hee, hee!
They have mochi too! The fancy packing, straight outta Martha Stewart chi-chi style.
Fantabulously, retailly authentic. Great fun, try it sometime!
This store is the only place you can get the Japanese goods that they have. But I must say, everything is over priced. It's very expensive to pick up a few things to eat. Everything is good quality here, just the prices are sometimes outrageous.
Great little stop on the 2nd floor. Lots of delicious and addicting Asian foods. Great for eating in or to take out if you only have a 30 minute luch break like myself. There's something for everyone there.
I used to go here at least 3 times a week to pick up a meal- either to eat in Shirokiya, on a bench outside of the 3rd floor with sweeping views of Ala Moana beach park, or actually taking it across the street to the beach park. The bentos are amazing, but the best has to be their package of deep fried chicken.
