setonaikai japanese supermarket


Setonaikai is an independent family-owned shop based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, specializing in authentic ingredients, cookware and tableware from Japan and the Far East, along with a range of cards and gifts.

We also have a growing range of the exotic, eclectic and the unusual from all four corners of the world. A vast selection you may not find anywhere else. 

An Aladdin’s cave for cooks and those with an interest in the Orient.

Our shop borrows its name from Setonaikai, which is the inland sea that runs between Japan's main islands of Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu.

The original shop, stocking solely Japanese food, cookware and tableware first opened in 1986. In 1994, Setonaikai moved to Shrewsbury and is currently situated in The Parade, an impressive 1820's building built in the 'Greek Revival' style that is home to many unique independent shops.

We are proud to have had our tableware included in some high profile cookery programmes over the years such as "Gok Cooks Chinese" and the Good Food Channel's "Perfect".
