Shirokiya Japan Village Walk offers customers a unique experience showcasing a traditional Japanese town reminiscent of old Kyoto. Highlighting traditional Japanese culture, the store offers a variety of Japanese food selections. Shirokiya Japan Village Walk consists of four main themes: Yataimura (quality food court and beer garden featuring $1 beers), Zeppin Plaza (shopping alleys), Omatsuri Hiroba (festival and event square) and Guardian Spirits Sanctuary (good luck gods). Through the years Shirokiya has become very much a part of the cultural community of Hawaii and we are very grateful for the show of support the people of Hawaii has given us during the changing times.

I’ve been to Japan before and this is as close to Japan in America as I’ve seen. The whole village is an experience. The food is AMAZING! I had chicken karaage curry, shrimp tempura, and spring rolls. I wish I had 3 stomachs! The stores...were also very representative of what you’d see in Japan. Cute stationary and accessories galore. I can’t wait to return and eat until my heart’s content.More

This is a great food court that will give you many options and choices of Asian food. It is in Ala Moana mall, but you will need to come back several times to enjoy so many choices. The prices are not so bad and there...are plenty or tables to eat. Enjoy!More

we cancelled trip we planned to japan but got a little taste of what we might have had in this place. My son who is a picky eater loved this. It is a food court but you can choose whatever you want from each vendor...and it arrives at your table hot and ready to eat. Came with daughter and son-in-law who are recent residents of hawaii and they recommended place. Try out bakery too for sweets. Until we actually make it to Japan this is a good substitute. Very roomy seating area with entertainment (while we were there).More

If you like Japanese food, you will surely find something you like here. The options are seemingly endless. We sampled a variety of vendors and all were delicious. It's on the lower level at Ala Moana.

My husband and I were recommend this location by a local while on vacation and we loved it! We didn’t try any of the food but enjoyed hanging out and drinking beer. By far the cheapest drinks we found in the area

A return visit after a year to see how this place has changed. Many new eating places so was excited to visit again. Tried the tanto miso ramen and their standard gyoza. The miso ramen broth was a bit spicy but lacked overall full body...- it would not be judged acceptable by a discriminating ramen customer. The traditional gyoza had a funny flavor - like sour cabbage - again it would not be deemed acceptable by gyoza eaters. The restaurant that boosted of having the best gyoza in Japan also was lacking in the quantity of filling and flavor. Definitely could not be considered anywhere close to being the best in Japan. Overall very disappointed with the service quality as well as the quality of the food. Anxious to try other eateries in the village on another day.More

Mostly Ramen, Tempura, Musubi, Sushi. There are lots of different stalls - hard to decide which to choose.

Lots of choices of Japanese food vendors. Prices are decent. Mostly ramen and tempura along with vendors for tapioca drinks and lemonade. There is a section with many Japanese desserts. Food was good quality

Picture the Mall of America filled with again fast food and throngs of screaming people trying to talk over a Don Ho imitator. If that's what you're in to....go for it.
