Just that folks may not be aware, there is a new shop selling Japanese products in Singapore! アキバのホシ/Akiba no Hoshi, translated as Akiba’s Star, opened in June 2011 by three Japanese expatriates who shuttle frequently between their home country, Taiwan, Singapore and China. Minibus Group is honored to do a little promotion for them (at no cost!) and hope that readers can give this shop a visit!
Address and how-to-get-there is included at the end of this post.
