Welcome to Japan Centre Group!
Japan Centre began life in 1976 with a suitcase full of Japanese books and an idea to cater for the community of Japanese people living in London. Japan Centre has since grown to become one of the largest and most influential Japanese retailers in London and Europe, with its new flagship store on Panton Street, and stores in Westfield Stratford City.
Japan Centre now includes, Shoryu Ramen, a popular chain of ramen restaurants with 10 branches across London, Manchester and Oxford. We also have our fine dining restaurant called Sakagura, a sake and steak dining experience in Heddon Street, Mayfair.
In July 2018, Japan Centre Group alongside Cool Japan Fund opened Ichiba, Europe’s largest Japanese food hall in Westfield London. Featuring, a dedicated Japanese bakery and cafe, foodhall, and hot food stations and bar.
