Some history about Sanko along with some vintage photos:

There was another Japanese-owned and operated store (with video rental) on Dundas near Spadina in the early 90s - does anyone else remember it?

Unfortunately, I don't remember the details of that store. But from (unsuccessfully) searching for it Google, I just realized for the first time that there's a current place called Sukoshi Mart in Kensington Market that sells Japanese snacks and items.

I believe it was called Furuya. I remember going as a kid during the 80's to get Japanese candies and snacks that weren't available elsewhere. They also had prepared packs of Sushi, which was a new thing at the time.

Yes! - and with a name there is something to go by!
