This small, plain Asian grocery, known as Tonjin Mart until 2008, prides itself on being a purveyor of fresh sushi. Cut and rolled in-house, the sushi can be made to order and is a few steps above most dry-rice supermarket fare. Tokyo Mart is also a good place to explore the world of Asian candy. The shop is filled with the colorful snacks that your favorite anime character dreams of packing into his/her lunch box: sweets ranging from milky to sour; dried delicacies as diverse as squid or plum; and ice-cream bars flavored with fruits (such as durian) and roots (such as taro). Marukawa Gum is a classic: incredibly sweet without being cloying, and its flavor stays fresh for hours. If you’re a fan of gummies, then pick up a pack of Kasugai candies. Litchi, mango, and muscat flavors are especially luscious, recalling the fruits at their ripest. Toyko Mart also sells a selection of decorated bowls, teacups and teapots, and chopsticks.
