You will never find better tasting Japanese take-out than at Kawamoto Store. The trick is to go early, immediately after they open. They sell out quickly, and for good reason. You cannot imagine better flavors. Once you try them Trippers, it becomes your gold standard. Beware. This is another of those incredible hole-in-the-walls that everyone talks about, but few ever have the privilege of trying. Go early. I'm not kidding.
Get there early probably run out by 11:00 am.
They take credit cards!
If you're looking for good Japanese deli style take out plates, this is the place to go! Used to eat here when I was growing up on the Big Island. Great place to make a take out plate with cone sushi, shrimp and string bean tempura, fishcake, fried chicken, etc. - for a plate lunch for a picnic or when going to the beach or fishing, etc. Still has a line - so go early!!!
Go early for the best selection
Cash and major credit cards accepted. Went in at 10:00 am on a weekday and cone sushi and coconut was all pau :(
