William Mizuno opened Sanko Trading Co. in 1968 to serve Toronto’s Japanese community with a wide range of Japanese groceries and home goods. Today, Sanko is a one stop shop for Japanese culinary staples, including a wide variety of spices, sauces, teas and snacks, as well as kitchenwares and gifts. The grocery store is still run by the Mizuno family, including William and his son, Steve.

After grabbing your groceries, take some time to linger outside and admire the colorful and eclectic mural wrapped around Sanko’s building.
