Miyu Life Store in Carousel Shopping Centre

As I was taking my kids to the free indoor play area in Carousel shopping centre the other day, I noticed this shop Miyu opened right next to the playground.   This is another shop that sells 100yen goods from Japan (exclude cosmetic products), like Fuji Mart and NEUGO.

Miyu’s first store is located on Newcastle street in Northbridge, so I guess this is their second shop in Perth.  I’ve never been to the Northbridge store, and for me with two children it’s much easier to go to this one inside a shopping centre.

The size of the store is about the same as NEUGO.  I found some goods from Seria and Can-Do (both are popular 100 yen shops in Japan) there.  I thought they have quite good range of products and it was easy to spot items as they display products tidily and according to the category.

They also sell cosmetics and Japanese-brand nappies.  Cosmetic products are not from Japan though, there’re Chinese written on the packaging.

I just did some online shopping from Japan few weeks ago, and I already own some of the items sold at the store (yes, I always go to 100 yen shops in Japan to buy things for the house), so I didn’t really buy things – except this binoculars.  I’m not sure if $2.80 is cheap for binoculars, but my boys always fight over one pair of binoculars at home and I really needed to get one more.  Plus, I thought I can trust the quality of product sold in Japan.  This binoculars are Can-Do brand (100 yen shop in Japan).

Looks alright, for being a 100yen item. So now my boys have one each. 🙂

NEUGO Japanese Store in Perth

There’s a new shop in Coventry Village selling 100yen items from Japan.  Some stores such as Fuji Mart in Subiaco sells 100yen items as well, but this store NEUGO sells Seria brand.

Seria is one of 100yen shops in Japan, just like Daiso and CanDo, and has many shops across Japan.  I love the brand image of Seria and its items as its theme is “natural” “European taste” .   Very cute.  They, of course, also sell some Japanese plates & cups which are made in Japan, as well as some Japanese food & drinks.   I just love their variety.

At NEUGO, the store looks pretty clean and tidy.  All items are arranged according to their categories such as “cleaning”, “kitchen”, and “bathroom”, which is easy for customers to find where items are.

I haven’t been back to Japan for 1.5 years and it wasn’t difficult for me to find something I want to buy there.  For example, this small scissors with magnet is perfect for the fridge.  Super strong suction-cup hook (comes with 4) looked handy too.

All items are $2.80 each, and until 31/Jan/2016 they are doing $5.00 off (with a minimum purchase of $20).  You can find this discount voucher inside the store.

With 1500 different products to chose from, anything you need for unique lunchbox making and handy cleaning items, you may find them here.

MCQ at Coventry Village
“Farmer Jacks” inside Coventry Village in Morley.  Some items are much cheaper than other shops, such as Koshihikari rice, konnyaku, furikake rice seasonings and nori seaweed.  They sell a variety of frozen food and this is where I buy all the ingredients for oden in winter!

243-253 Walter Road, Morley WA 6062

 

Coles

And, nowadays Coles and Woolworths sell Japanese items on international isle.  They normally stock up basic stuff only such as nori seaweed, sushi vinegar and Japanese curry roux,  but some store sell unique one e.g. QP wasabi mayonnaise!  And sometimes you find a bargain – few weeks ago at local Coles, I got a pack of Japanese panko for $2.  Now I’m thinking to make delicious katsu 🙂

 


Yee Seng Oriental in Myaree

Posted August 22nd, 2015 in Japanese Stores in Perth, Perth WA | No Comments »

Before I moved to North of the River I lived in Winthrop and whenever I needed Asian grocery I went to this place – Yee Seng Oriental Supermarket.

Yee Seng is located in Hulme Court in Myaree, just opposite Sundays Everyday and Perth Kimuchi.

The Japanese section used to be small, but now it’s expanded and you can find lots of Japanese & Korean grocery items at this store.

Most of the items, including rice, noodle and konnyaku, are actually tad cheaper at Coventry Village, but I still like Yee Seng because you can find more variety of Japanese food here.

For example, some frozen ready-to-cook food such as pre-cooked tempura, korokke, and crumbled fish are not sold at Coventry Village (to my knowledge).

vegetables

You can get some Asian vegetables here too.

Yee Seng YeeSeng yeeseng2

This is my another favourite section – drinks.  There are lots of Korean drinks that are at low cost.  They sell Korean version of Yakult cheaper than Yakult (although I’ve never tried as I always go with Yakult).

I love Hulme Court – there are lots of good grocery shops and restaurants/takeaway shops. 🙂

NEW Place to Get Japanese Food – FUJI MART in Perth

Posted June 6th, 2015 in Japanese Stores in Perth, Perth WA | 10 Comments »

It’s been awhile since I wrote about grocery stores in Perth where you can buy Japanese products.  Nowadays most Asian grocery shops sell Japanese food, and even supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths sell some Japanese food on the international isle.  – But they are always the same products : soy sauce, wasabi, nori sheets, mayonnaise, sauces, seasonings… some basic things only.  So for Japanese people who live in Perth and want something more “Japanese”, they’d go to Nippon Food in Subiaco where they can buy more variety of Japanese food and goods.

Now, however, there is a new Japanese grocery shop recently opened in Subiaco (same suburb as Nippon Food!)  – Fuji Mart.

IMG_6237

 

Fuji Mart is a newly opened shop which caters variety of Japanese products including food and also some home wares.  They did a big opening ceremony at the shop few weeks ago which I missed – everything in store was 20% OFF!

The shop is conveniently located on Station Street in Subiaco, just above Woolworths car park (which you’ll pay $0 for 90minutes parking).  You’ll find this store in front of the escalator from/to the car park.

IMG_6238 IMG_6239 IMG_6240

Inside the shop resemble a Japanese convenience store or supermarket.  Products are displayed neatly and everything is easy to see.  The store manager at this store has worked at Fuji Mart in Eastern State for a decade, and I can see he has some skill to display a retail shop –  WELL DONE!

IMG_6241

And, at Fuji Mart, you will find much cheaper price compared to elsewhere.  Some items are cheapest here to my knowledge!

You can also buy some “100 yen goods” here at Fuji Mart in Subiaco at $2.50.

IMG_6242 IMG_6243

I was quite amazed by the variety of goods sold here.  You can even find a kit for Japanese calligraphy, magonote (back scratcher), and takoyaki-making plate!!!

IMG_6247

 

I definitely recommend this store to anyone.  If you haven’t been here, just come!  The products are selling super fast so you may find some empty shelves, but they are ordering stocks and hopefully once the store starts rolling on track you can shop everything you need for a Japanese feast!

Japanese Grocery Shops

Posted June 17th, 2011 in Japanese Stores in Perth, Perth WA | 4 Comments »

 

(*** This is an old post.   Read my newer post***)

I’ve posted grocery shops that I go to in Perth here, but they need to be updated!

Super Fuji in Victoria Park closes at the end of this month, but the shop isn’t open everyday already.  And, Sushi Station Fuji no longer opens either.  It’s shame that I really wanted to eat sushi over there after I gave birth to Hiro.  🙁  These two shops were owned by same owner (Japanese couple), but they suddenly decided to close both of them for a while…

Nippon Food Supplies in Fremantle is also closing at the end of June (this month!).  From July, only Subiaco shop will operate.

There seems to be new shops selling Japanese items in Perth city, but I haven’t been there yet.

Hi Mart, Seoul Mart, and Hanaro Mart (Korean grocery shops) sell very similar items to Japanese food, and they are much cheaper.

Hi Mart :

133 Barrack Street, Perth WA 6000 – (08) 9417 7776

113 Collins Road, Willetton WA 6155 – (08) 9354 1433

346 Albany hwy, Victoria Park WA

Winthrop Shopping Centre, 131 Somerville Blvd, Winthrop WA 6150

Hanaro Mart :

Shop7, North Lake shopping Centre, 67 North Lake Rd, Myaree WA

Seoul Mart :

Shop 4-5, 544 Hay St (on Pier St) (08) 9221 0322

Shop 76 Southland Shopping Centre, Pinetree Gully Rd, Willetton, WA

And, if you want to buy some Japanese grocery directly from importer, you can call up Japan Food Corp. (JFC).  You can browse their product list on their  website. If you want to go there, I recommend to call them first and tell them when you are coming, so that staff can prepare things for you.

There are Tokyo Mart and Fuji Mart in NSW, QLD and VIC, and there will be new Tokyo Mart shop opening in WA around the end of this year!  They say the shop will be in Karawara, but exact location is unknown at the moment.
