best places to get traditional japanese ingredients?

alkylyou | Nov 10, 2008 01:01 PM

i am from torrance and i shop regularly at mitsuwa, nijiya and marukai in the area, but i was wondering if there was anyplace else i was missing.
i am specifically looking for places to get fresh yuzu, shiso, shishito, etc.
if these are the only places, who has the best selection/prices?
i know most fine japanese ingredients are somewhat expensive.
also, out of curiosity, is there some kind of yuzu concentrate/syrup/etc?
i've been dreaming about making yuzu shaved ice or something similar for a while (ever since that yuzu sake sherbet at kagura).
