And not a day too soon. The upside-down shampoo bottle trick doesn’t really work for more than a couple of days, let alone two weeks, which is how long Mitsuwa has been closed for the much needed renovations to both the food court and the grocery store. Unfortunately, after just coming back from a visit, it appears that the food court is still closed and the grocery store is limitedly open but with new scanners for the checkout girls. Let’s take a look and together we can challenge happiness everyday.
THE STORY SO FAR
Mitsuwa the grocery store re-opens today, but here is the image of the great “Sorry for the Inconvenience” poster they put up.
TAMPOPO RAMEN STALLED TO BE REPLACED
Rumor has it that the very popular “Tampopo” ramen is being replaced by a ramen chain called Santouka Ramen which is already installed in the Mitswa Costa Ramen.
JAPANESE VIDEO RENTAL STORE ADDED
What used to be a random room/hole that was really “picture machine-adjacent” at the entrance of the marketplace has been replaced with a Video Rental store. I know I don’t speak the language, but I like options.
EVERYTHING ELSE THE SAME PLUS ONE GIANT HELLO KITTY
I should’ve taken a picture, but I swear that retarded cop WAS EVERYWHERE. Like I’m going to steal shampoo and Yakult™.
All the other stores were exactly the same except the TRENDY appliance store had a massive Hello Kitty in cellophane and a bow in the front of it that I don’t remember seeing, AND I’M PRETTY SURE I WOULD NOTICE THAT.
More pictures to come when they fully reopen.
