Sakura Groceries in Stockton

I'm just back from Sakura in Stockton, which is a mom-and-pop store trading in Japanese food and small items. It's amazing. The food selection is level with the biggest supermarkets in San Francisco's Japantown (Ichiban Kan and Nijiya Markets). Of course, Ichiban Kan has overwhelming supply of kitchenware and stationary, and Nijiya has raws of beauty products and fresh vegetable section. Nonetheless, if you just want basics, nothing better than Sakura can be desired.

In saw (presumably) owner's 6-year old daughter in the store. She's the sweetest little thing imaginable. I thought I'd melt when I heard her speaking (in Japanese - and a quite concise and polite one too).
