I wish I would have known about this when I went to HK years ago! It looks amazing.

Sigh, I go to HK every year to visit family and every time I always visit this street a few times. I come back with as much as I can, but I cry inside cause I can't bring any livestock or plants back to the states. *shakes fist*

My heart is hurting....

Wait, cant you buy a bunch of plants, and with the money you save, SHIP them back to the US?

How would someone whose not getting to HK anytime soon, [or ever] get these plants/ awesome deals? Do they have a website?

I am so enchanted by this place, i want to start saving to go!

You need a phytosanitary certificate and an import license in order to ship plants back from other countries.

Here's a few pictures that I took while I was there, I was too busy picking my jaw off the ground to take any more lol









It's literally two long blocks of livestock and supplies, most of which are like 1/2 the price of what you pay for back here in the states.

I got these two lovely decorations for the tank in my apartment in HK. Both together were like $5 US.... all the plants that they leave out in the open are constantly misted to keep moist.

Glad you know it

Let me see if I have any other pictures...

Edit: Guess not - I could have sworn I had some from some other shops in Tokyo as well as in Kyoto (guess I didn't take pictures; either that or I can't find them)
