Located in the middle of the very impressive food hall inside Solamachi shopping mall, Kitano Ace carries some rather specialized products, including 400 different pouch curries from shops all over Japan.
Curries range in price from Y270 to over Y1000 per box, and include unusual variations such as inoshishi (wild boar), melon, strawberry, yuzu and natto. There's also an extensive selection of jams, shelves and shelves full of bottled sauces, and fresh ramen kits from famous ramen shops around the country.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From Bento.com.
