Also known as: Old Uwajimaya
Although the tenants may have changed over the years, the blue iconic tile roof has been a mainstay of the neighborhood since the building first opened as home to Uwajimaya in 1970. It is often still referred to as “Old Uwajimaya” by long-time Seattle residents. The site served as cultural and community gathering space, Nagomi Tea House, with its own traditional Japanese Chashitsu tea house, from 2011 to 2018.
