In 1977, Shigeru Hirai opened the first Fujiya store in old Japantown, Vancouver. His goal: for everyone to be able to enjoy Japanese food – whether on the go or prepared at home with quality ingredients.
After opening the first store, Fujiya expanded to 2 other locations: Richmond (1989) and Victoria (1991). The Powell street store moved to Clark Drive in 1994, and the Downtown location opened in 1998.
