    One of the major draws of this place is the amazing book store, where you will find Japanese books on every subject including art and manga, and imported CDs. Also, the food court has Beard Papa.

    One of my favorite stops when I'm in Seattle. Great selection of bento boxes and related supplies; fun import gift items for the kids, and a great bookstore next door.

    Very very happy with the variety of food, at great value. Buy stuff from the food court or from the supermarket. Toilet code is on your receipt (or ask a stranger with one)

    Uwajimayas own "deli" section of the food court is better than any place that has the word Panda in its name. Very authentic

    They have pre-cleaned and spiced sanma. Just throw in 20min@400f. If you're willing to work for 5 minutes, you can buy whole sanma and clean them, slice the skin, and shake with taco spice mix.

    Herfy's fish and chips (cod) seem to be the only thing good there, Saigon Bistro: skip the pho if you know what good pho is like, while their vermicelli noodle bowls are pretty good

    Watch out for lurking weeaboos. They can be found loudly reading the hiragana on candy packages, or playing in the Sanrio section. They are likely not children.
