I cannot escape. Apparently the University of Texas at Austin’s advanced Japanese class has taken it upon themselves to produce a detailed guide to Austin in 日本語. Good stuff.
Some other interesting shops I’ve noted stateside:
– Asahi Imports on Burnet Road is run by a family from Okinawa (who speak perfect English) and actually has quite the selection from Japanese supermarkets. The same small bottle of ocha, $3.19.
