Conveniently located in the heart of Manhattan, we have provided New Yorkers with Japanese groceries ever since Katagiri Brothers Inc, opened its doors in 1907 in New York by two brothers who emigrated from Japan. In the early years, there weren’t many Japanese people in New York, so they catered to the local customers with fine imported goods such as coffee and tea in addition to Japanese groceries.

They also supplied food and drinks for steamships as a ship chandler and grew their business to boast a wide range of products, from groceries to tableware as well as books and clothes. The store continued to operate throughout the wars, and today Katagiri is cherished by both Japanese locals and New Yorkers as a grocery store that specializes in Japanese food.
