Roppongi is a mix of many years of love for Japan, a long-term friendship and a lot of perseverance.
Our love for Japan started while studying Japanese Language and Culture at Leiden but only really blossomed in Nagasaki where we both lived for a year. As colleagues, we worked at the Meidi-Ya, once the oldest Japanese supermarket in the Netherlands, meanwhile stopped. Between the sushi and colorful packaging of all the ingredients we both learned the ins and outs of Japanese cuisine and developed a friendship and the idea itself to start a shop. Not only with Japanese ingredients, but all beautiful, special, funny, cute and nice things to offer the land of the rising sun has. With great perseverance, we now have a shop and we travel through the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany to let everyone live to enjoy all the beautiful things that we look at each other in our shop. Because we like as many people as possible to share with everything that concerns us, we also blogging for Mood Kids and The Sushi Times.
We hope you enjoy as Roppongi like us and wish you a lot of shopping fun!
