Bangkok's Sukhumvit 26 district has one of the Thai capital's most well-known oases of Japaneseness, the Nihonmachi mall.

Nihonmachi opened in 2010, and for the past seven years has been providing Bangkok with the colors and flavors of Japan, with its approximately 20 restaurants.

We were in Bangkok last weekend and wandered through Nihonmachi mall at round about noon on Saturday. Even though it opens at 10:30am, we were too early. There were still very few people there. We figured it must be one of those places that gets going later in the day, maybe more a late-lunch or dinner place.

From the kanji-style fonts, and actual kanji signs, to the chochin paper lanterns, to the menu boards out front, it all feels authentically Japanese.

The restaurants at the two-floor Nihonmachi do not pretend to be haute cuisine. It is good, solid unpretentious fare like yakitori, yakiniku, gyudon and sukiyaki - and even a Korean restaurant. Many of the restaurants here feature regional Japanese fare, most notably from Hokkaido and Okinawa.

This spacious, up-to-date dining mall is a great place to dine and hang out if you're in Bangkok and feel like a bite of Japanese.

The nearest station to Nihonmachi is the BTS Phrom Phong Station.
