The New and Upcoming Little Tokyo/Japan Town (J-Town) of Toronto, Canada

Toronto, being world renowned for being highly multi-cultural and accepting of all cultures, has many famous pockets such as Spadina’s China Town and Little India in the Greenwood area.

Japan on the other hand, has never established a neighbourhood for itself until recently.  With the increasing popularity of Japanese brands such as Uniqlo and Muji (both now in/near the Eaton Centre) the Dundas Street and Bay Street area of Toronto is quickly establishing itself as the ‘Little Tokyo’ or ‘Japan Town’ of Toronto.


In a short 300m stretch of Dundas Street between Yonge Street and University Avenue, it is now possible to spend a full day dedicated all things Japanese.  The area is very accessible by TTC with two subway lines and a street car line running through it.
