The City Market will welcome a new tenant this weekend, when Yoki opens for business on Saturday at 400 Grand, Suite 426.

"Yoki" translates roughly to "cheerful" in Japanese, and the shop is aiming to reflect that with its variety of Japanese-inspired "housewares, kitchenware, dishes & ceramics, stationary and home office items, health and beauty products, gifts, novelties, and seasonal items," according to a release.

"My family members moved to Kansas City from California when I was a teenager," says Danny Lo, who co-owns Yoki with Peng Her. "While on the West Coast, I really enjoyed the Japantowns and Little Tokyo districts of the cities there. I felt that there was room in Kansas City for a cheerful goods store with a Japanese-inspired twist."

Hours are 10 a.m.-7 p.m. Sunday through Friday and 7:30 a.m.-7 p.m. Saturday. More information at Yoki's website, which is here.
