And don't forget KoMart!

I love Korean food and goods and I shop there pretty regularly. I am going to check out HMart too, and Mitsuwa!

I remember the first time I walked into a local sushi place, about 20 years or so ago. I lived in Japan as a child, and it's interesting how scents and smells can be so evocative. As soon as I walked into that Japanese restaurant, tears of nostalgia filled my eyes. There was just something about the scents of seaweed, seafood, etc.

I recently read a book called "The Yokota Officers Club" and WOW - it was amazing. I mean, to me it was, because it was all about a young American girl growing up in Yokohama (Yokota military installation) during the 1960s, and every chapter was titled with a scent. When it talked about the scent of Coppertone, cigarettes, and chlorine as wives and children sat around the pool at the officer's club, while the men were deployed to Vietnam - MAN ALIVE. It took me STRAIGHT back.

So whenever I walk into an Asian market, of any size really but especially one of the larger ones, and I see all the goods displayed, it makes me feel really good inside. I remember shopping with my beautiful, young mother in Tokyo. What an experience!

Maybe they want to open their flagship in a wealthy area to make deeper impression?
