The area surrounding Kawanishi Noseguchi Station is a great shopping area in Kawanishi. It is also the area in which Smith’s School of English Kawanishi is located, making it very convenient for me to shop or eat out when I’m not teaching English. I recently wrote about a shopping mall located there in the blog ASTE Kawanishi. Another shopping mall located near my English school is MOSAIC BOX (モザイクボックス). I like to go there to buy school supplies, home supplies or to eat at a restaurant. I like going to The Daisō (ザ・ダイソー) and Daikoku Doragu (ダイコクドラッグ). I have been to the bookstore Books Kinokuniya (紀伊國屋書店) where I bought a map of Kawanishi. Restaurants that I’ve been to there are Jyo (城), OOTOYA (大戸屋), CAFE RESTAURANT CORIN (カフェレストラン・コリン) and MAMENOHATAKE (豆の畑). Once at Jyo, I enjoyed an English conversation with a waitress who was interested in English. That was fun. OOTOYA had an English menu which was nice. The food was delicious at all restaurants.
MOSAIC BOX is a nice shopping mall for shopping or dining if you come to Kawanishi. Enjoy!
