…and so many things to choose from! This is just one of the shops.
Yakisoba – 100 yen ($1.30)!!! They also were selling obento boxes (lunch box sets) for $3 each.
Look at our son, he was in street food paradise!!!!!!
A homemade pickle (tsukemono) shop
Japanese corrokets & cutlets – OMG! the prices started from just 40c!!
I didn’t see any tourists in Joyful Minowa. The prices were much cheaper as well. If you want to have a unique foodie experience in Tokyo, I totally recommend going there. Oh…you better take your dictionary – very little English is spoken there.
Sadly in Japan, many local market places like these are closing down now. I much much prefer shopping at these kinds of places rather than shopping centres. Here in Australia, I do market work so I do as much shopping as possible at markets.
I hope Joyful Minowa will last for a long long time.
How to get to Joyful Minowa shopping mall
Take the Toden Arakawa line to Minowabashi Station – 30 second walk or…
Take the Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line to Minowa Station – 6 minute walk
The Toden Arakawa Line is a little street car line. Riding on this local street car is a really fun thing to do.
