Japanese Convenience Stores

We have done a bit of exploring in our local area. I think my favorite thing so far is going to local convenience stores like Family Mart and 7-Eleven to pick up meals to go.

Convenience stores in Japan are nothing like in the US. They sell bento boxes and all sorts of goodies and treats.

Delicious, easy and affordable. The average cost is around $5 for a meal.

They also sell an assortment of pastries. Light, fluffy and not overly sweet. And a ton of other snacks – candy, dried cuttlefish, senbei. There is also a fried food stand with things like fried chicken, korokke, and corn dogs as well as a steamed bun stand with char siu bao. We haven’t even scratched the surface of all the items in the convenience stores and I’m so excited to try everything!
