“Little Japan in the Big Apple”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Nicely wrapped, beautiful looking and delicious Japanese with a big price tag. Worth trying once when you are in New York City. Will make nice gifts too. The environment in the store also gives you the feeling of being in Japan. The staff is friendly and helpful, especially if you are trying for the first time.

“Good Gift for Family and Friends”
Reviewed May 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The store sells authentic traditional-style Japanese snacks/treats. I typically buy them for my parents when I visit them as snacks are not sold everywhere in the US. It is not cheap (it is not cheap in Japan either) and usually given as a gift.

“High quality but expensive”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Really nice wagashi.

I liked their seasonal persimmon wagashi. Even their mochi with red bean (the long leaf / fish shaped one) is better than the normal one. Very tasty. Eat them with tea.

“Original Gift Idea”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I gave my G/F candies from Minamoto Kitchoan on Valentine's Day. She loved them! It's not your typical gift...and she loved the originality. :)
