With the recent opening of Anima Tokyo – an 80,000-square-foot experience centre in Tsim Sha Tsui that immerses visitors in the world of Japanese anime – comes the destination’s Showaki Food Town for wining and dining.

Before or after visiting Anima Tokyo’s many anime and manga exhibition zones, guests can stop by Showaki Food Town on the second floor to savour the authentic Japanese flavours offered up at the dining arcade, all curated by Michelin-starred chefs.

Designed to resemble retro Japanese streets dating back to Japan’s Showa era from the 1940s to the 1980s, this nostalgic food court brings together 10 distinctive Japanese eateries. These include live seafood specialist Kaihōsuisan, sushi purveyor Sushiai, and ramen by i Ramen. There’s even an on-site Japanese whisky bar, Takumi. 

Like Anima Tokyo itself, Showaki Food Town takes a holistic approach, also offering a kimono experience zone and regularly playing host to cultural events, such as tuna-filleting demos and activities related to Japanese festivals.
