Can’t go to Tokyo or Osaka? These Japanese stores in Hong Kong will make you feel as if you’re in Japan
As one of the most international cities, Hong Kong has all the best shopping malls, fashion boutiques and fine dining restaurants. While many Hong Kongers have been to Japan before, it’s true that not everyone has the time and money to travel often. If you are looking for great food, personal care products, fashions or anything from Japan, our list of best Japanese stores in Hong Kong will come in handy.
Best Japanese stores in Hong Kong
1. @ Cosme Store
Think of @ Cosme Store as the Japanese version of Sephora, where friendly staff will provide one-to-one consultations and find the best suitable products for each customer. From affordable brands like Canmake and Media to luxurious brands like Sekkisei and Kanebo, the huge collection of makeup and skincare products will keep you lingering around for hours. What’s cool is that some of their branches have sinks where you can try out facial cleansers and scrubs.

2. Don Don Donki
We bet most of you have heard of the catchy Don Don Donki song. As one of the fastest-growing Japanese grocery stores in the world, Don Don Donki has rapidly opened five branches in Hong Kong within two years. Attracting loyal customers with their enormous collection of affordable Japanese food, beverages, home supplies and toys, Don Don Donki is always packed with people. Another highlight is that they provide an array of fresh bentos and sushi, making them a great place for a grab-n-go meal.

When it comes to comfy casual wear, how can we not mention Uniqlo? Uniqlo’s patented HEATTECH series is their all-time best-seller, but other simple items like jeans, t-shirts and jackets are also popular. In addition to female, male and children’s wear, the brand also sells blankets, bags and accessories. Bonus: the brand often collaborates with world-famous artists and entities like Marimekko and One Piece to make limited edition t-shirts.

Sogo is one of the best Japanese department stores with a diverse selection of products. From groceries to fashion, homeware to beauty, and technology to toys, there is nothing you cannot get from Sogo. We are huge fans of their biannual Thankful Week where you can shop tons of products at as low as 70% off the usual price. Sogo’s gift vouchers are also great for those struggling with gift ideas.

One of the oldest Japanese department stores in Hong Kong, Aeon is where you can shop affordable groceries, homeware and personal care products. Their popular sub-brand Living Plaza sells an array of home products at only $12, making it a great place to shop simple items like folders, photo frames and bowls. Make sure to check out their supermarket on Wednesdays to restock some veggies and snacks at a good price.

6. Guu San
A grocery store that recently expanded to Hong Kong, Guu San emphasises health and wellness. We like the fact that Guu San sells bulk food, so that consumers can help with reducing plastic wastes. Another cool thing about Guu San is that they have a grab-n-go counter with delectable bentos like rice balls and salads. Guests are also welcomed to sit back at their relaxing dining area.

Aiming to improve people’s lifestyle, Yata has numerous department stores, supermarkets and a convenience store in Hong Kong. Sourcing the hottest groceries, clothing, skincare products and homeware, Yata provides Japanese products for every budget.
