You know when you go to a movie and you're really hungry afterwards but you're doing a full-on dinner soon but you just want to try a little of a few bites in the meantime? That's what you get downstairs at the Japan House. It's a bit confusing: there is a menu where you can order (also you can see the tempura, etc in the case) but then it turns out that some things were not available that day or you had to go upstairs, and it wasn't until after we paid that we found out that the buns we had ordered were sold out. The manager came over and offered us a substitute flavor, which was okay. It's just a little chaotic.

Above the Japanese showroom downstairs, the Japan House restaurant offers a sublime dining experience. The ambiance is unrivaled. The service is fantastic. Each item on the menu is phenomenal, inventive and terribly delicious. The menu encourages sharing and then open kitchen invited guests to watch as their meals are prepared for them.

I love this place for the education I get every time I visit it. The expo space downstairs always has an exhibit that will make you think. The food is beautiful.

The shop is lovely and bright and clear.
Lots to look at see.
Different types crockery to buy and information with everything next to each item.
This is quite an expensive shop.
There is also information on holidays to Japan.
