Where oh where can I buy a suribachi?

Does anyone know where I can buy a suribachi-you know, the Japanese mortar/pestle (although this has a separate name) that's ceramic and grooved on the inside?

      Bump - can anyone point me in the direction of any specific stores in Toronto? If possible I want to avoid buying online. I'd much rather be able to see and examine them before I buy one.

        I'm not an expert on either suribachis or Toronto, but don't you have a small Japanese community there? Called J-Town or something close to that? I'd research to find if there are any markets or general goods stores around there specializing in Japanese ingredients or cooking equipment.

          Call Mika's Japanese Gifts in MIssissauga. They have them.
