    I've never heard of Japanese basil, but I've seen Thai basil in Chinatown.

      Japanese basil is another term for shiso leaf. I seeeem to recall seeing it at T&T, not sure though.

      You can usually find it at Sanko (Queen West & Claremont), as well as many of the Korean markets on Bloor between Bathurst and Christie.
