Places for Japanese dishware and glassware?
I'm preferably looking for something in the Los Angeles area. We had previously bought some fantastic mugs and bowls at the Mitsuwa located in Torrance, but unfortunately the shop in that market doesn't seem to carry the items we had bought anymore. Wondering if there are better options that are closer in proximity.
The place I like for stuff like you're looking for is Rafu Bussan, 326 East Second Street, Los Angeles 90012 in Little Tokyo. It's one of the older businesses in the area and the ladies who work there are very helpful. They still gift wrap for free (for a clumsy clod like me it's a plus). Phone is 213-614-1181. They close at 6pm and they're closed one day during the week (which I've forgotten) so you'd better call first.
Try Rafu Bussan in Little Tokyo.
Large selection of mugs and bowls. Ask for Carol.
