Went to the store today, nice selection of japanese goods. I was happy to see some snacks from japan! I was standing in an aisle, and this guy ...maybe the owner ..he was stocking goods in that isle, anyways to cut things short the isle can only fit one person, he kept on going back and forth for 6 times! no kidding! He nudged me out of the way with the boxes the he was carrying! He didnt even say excuse me or sorry, he knew i was there too! Oh well, hes just a rotten tomato :-) One thing to watch out for is expiration dates, I found some snacks that were expired for 4 month! Some items didnt have a expiration date on it, but for the ones that does look for the numbers at the back (the words - month date year are display in japanese thoughl. I suggest shopping at H-Mart (korean selection), Hong Kong Supermarket (more vietnamese stuff, even though its called HK), or 99 Ranch (more chinese stuff), tomato is the size of a gas station convenience store - 95% of the stuff are japanese...the three I listed are publix / kroger size asian supermarkets. You will be impress if you visit one of the three I listed, they truly have a large selection of asian goods.
This is a nice, although small, Japanese grocery store. They have food items as well as dishes, magazines, books, and music. I wish the grocery selection was a bit larger but they do carry standard food and snacks like pocky, frozen dango, melon pan, mochi, and ramen. They also have a small selection of sake. They carry all of the basics you need, I just wished they had a larger variety of food and snack items, or at least rotated products out seasonally. Also, I have never been able to find assistance from anyone working there. I will ask them if they carry a product and they look incredibly puzzled. I repeat myself in perfectly understandable and grammatically sound Japanese and they continue to look puzzled and dont actually say...anything. I ended up finding the item on the shelf so either they have no idea what items they carry (highly unlikely as I see them stocking the shelves every time I go there) or they are trying to avoid talking to anyone. Tomato is also attached to a small restaurant that is very good if you want a quiet place to eat some sushi, just know what you want to buy before you get there.

I really like this store. They are located in a convenient spot in relation to where I live, and they have easily the biggest selection of different instant-noodle and instant-udon that I have yet seen (much bigger than big grocery chains like Kroger or Publix). There are also several items used in cooking traditional Japanese foods like udon and soba noodles, as well as miso soup base and seaweed. They have very reasonable prices, and the few times I asked for help translating the cashiers were helpful in that regard. I definitely recommend this store to anyone who wants to make some authentic Japanese food.
A quaint grocery store with 4 aisles, including the back freezer section. Some of the harder to find Japanese items that normal Asian grocery stores around Atl would not sale might be in stock here. Though there is a price premium included. Case in point, my recent trip to Los Angeles to Little Tokyo most high chew candys were around $1.50 to 1.75. Tomato was charging up to nearly $3. Other than that they also sell dvds of various Japanese shows including anime to soap operas / tv shows. Unfortunately they do not stock manga comics along with the anime.

Even though its somewhat small, it has a lot more Japanese foods than your typical Korean or Chinese supermarket. High quality goods at a reasonable price. More for the person familiar with Japanese cuisine - some people described this as subpar service, but its just that this store isnt meant for non-Japanese people who dont know what theyre looking for. And yes, Ill definitely make the most of my membership card.
Convineant, clean, new location. Friendly staff who greet you with everyday Japanese greetings but also with a good command of the English language. Good variety of Japanese groceries and a small touch of traditional Japanese kitchen and home accessories. This is definitely my favorite shopping spot on Windy Hill!
Friendly enough staff considering the language barrier with some. Theres everything you could want thats considered a Japanese staple, along with a home goods and media section. Moving down the road in a month and a half, so I expect theyll get a fifth star once its not so cramped. Otherwise, a great market!
Great store with everything we wanted. I wish there was a closer location to northeast GA but this was worth driving to. Friendly people were very helpful. Not sure if pricing was fair as you cant exactly comparison shop with no other source for Japanese products. We plan to make this store a regular stop.
I love this store offering really great Asian sweets and variety of easy to cook Japanese meals. Ive been getting quick snacks here lately and love it every time! Highly recommended for a quick trip to make fast dinner with authentic East Asian cuisine. It is really worth a visit!
The new store is nice! So much more spacious! People are super nice!! Im also impressed by the non-Japanese shoppers with very good Japanese mannerisms and understanding the language! For those from and/or lived in Japan - this is the right place to shop for real Japanese stuff!
You want Japanese groceries? Theyve got them here. Theres a free membership card you can get that gives significant discounts, so much candy and ice cream and condiments and stationary and toiletries and drinks from Japan that I dont know what to do with myself.
I wish some of these reviews were clearer... This place DOES have frozen sashimi grade fish for sale, and it is extremely high quality!expect to pay around $20.99/lb for the good stuff- which is a steal since most boutique grocers will charge closer to $40/lb.
regarding the "unfortunate" use of MSG in the sauces. There have been numerous studies disproving the myth that MSG is somehow toxic or horrible for us. Its just another form of sodium that happens to add incredible savory flavor.
I FOUND one!! Walked in and brought back memories of Lawson and Family Mart that we used to frequent for the small cakes and snacks!!! I sure do miss Oki! I just wish they had my favorite cakes and desserts.
This store has a small amount of Japanese imported goods you may not see at the big Asian grocery stores in metro Atlanta, but probably not enough to warrant the trip if you live a ways from Cobb County.
My daughters love this place !! :) They love the green tea selections of bread and snacks especially the green tea icecream . This store should have more buisness I would give this more than 5 stars
Love this place, always friendly and helpful, quality of food is 10/10. They got me a Fortune cat for my GFs birthday and she loves it. So glad I found this place! Makes my ramen game amazing!
Complete idiots!!! Dont shop here!!! They have incorrect pricing on items then try to tell you your wrong. They are liars and cheats worst place to shop with horrible customer service!!!
Pretty neat place; has all sorts of tasty stuff I havent seen outside of Japan. Unfortunately all of the sauces and noodle bowls contain MSG as an ingredient.
This place is cool. All kinds of hard to find Japanese foods. I got my unique flavored kit kats there. The two people I talked to were really helpful.
