  • We loved browsing the grocery aisles to see all of the variety. The food court offered many styles of Asian food at reasonable prices. This allowed us to sample new things as well as favorites.  more »
  • This is a cool Asian market, with an adjacent bookstore - manga shop. There are toys, books, housewares, and so much food! We tried a banana jackfruit lumpia with burnt sugar on the outside. All I can...  more »

  • I like how Uwajimaya lets the counter top and floors show a little wear in places. It gives an authentic character to the place. If all the signs were in Japanese, you'd swear you were actually shopping in typical market in Japan. (The staff is well trained on being courteous and helpful. They don't act like a question is a bother to their day.
  • You will love this place, so very interesting so many different things. Be sure to have a Cream Puff in the bakery eating area. Chocolate with coconut in top.I chose Chocolate Mouse filling. I would get up.at midnight, take the bus and then light rail to have another.
  • My favorite Asian Market in Seattle. Unlike many of it's counterparts, it offers primarily Japanese products. It's a great reminder of my childhood in Japan and has a lot of things that are hard to find elsewhere. If you're looking for great produce, prepackaged goodies, fresh meat and fish, handy kitchen gadgets, or fun little toys this is one the best places to go.
  • The best store for International foods, specializing from the far east. Also has a bookstore with tons of manga, stationary and supplies. Then there's multiple international eateries with great fresh cooked foods. Easy to spend a half day or more here. And a complete section of rice cookers and woks. Validated parking with purchase.
  • Lower prices on Japanese products than central market. Fuji bakery raisin bread is like heaven in your mouth. The bookstore has really good stationary. Free parking with validation. I always park underground to stay out of the rain.

Where to stay in Seattle

Famous for its architecture, Seattle's downtown area features a range of lodging options, including high-end hotels offering expensive rooms with views over Elliott Bay. Remember that despite their prices, many hotels in this waterfront district provide rather small rooms. If you need more space but don't want to break the bank, head out of downtown to some of the city's outlying neighborhoods. Seattle's diverse suburbs offer affordable bed and breakfasts, providing you with all the comforts of home and allowing you to see what local life is really like.
