Japanese ingredients

This is a pretty specific question, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of somewhere in Australia where I can buy kansui. Or somewhere online. It's used in making ramen, but I haven't been able to find it locally. I've been working with lye water instead, which yields decent results, but I'd like to get the real stuff.

  1. I think Tokyo Mart in Northbridge (Sydney) could be your best bet...

    Tokyo Mart
    Northbridge Plaza, 27 Sailors Bay Rd, Northbridge NSW 2063 (02) 9958 6860 ‎

    But there are other options here...
