Jurong West (Westgate) and ... drum-roll ... Orchard Central, the newish mall opp. Centrepoint.
The latter just opened 20/11/14, so I'll have to check it out.
What is the ranking of Japanese supermarkets?
There's Tokyo Hands, Meidi-Ya....
Edit to add: I can see a 'Where to shop' topic coming on that could be split into a FAQ post. Complicated in that one might shop at say Isetan, NTUC and wet markets. And that's just for food...
I will check it out. I used to go there to buy Japanese brands that were difficult/impossible to find outside of Japan (like Head Porter), and silly knick-knacks like the themed keychains that played the jingles of the various Yamanote line stations.

Nowhere near. They are about 1/10th the size or smaller than Shibuya, Futako-Tamagawa, or other Hands stores.
I would say, they don't suck, but don't expect a real Hands experience. Disappointing really.
Edit: Let me restate this - the stores now in Singapore are better in some ways than their local counterparts, although a lot of the merchandise is relatively pricey. They offer a good alternative to what already exists.
However when compared with the same store in Japan, they are no match for the scale and variety there.
