I thought it would be fun to show you all little bit of the everyday life in Japan, starting by sharing how supermarkets are in Japan.

I lived in Minami-Senju near Sky Tree Tower.

This town has been showcase in several trip related tv shows

As a jewel for foreigners, because of their nice affordable hotels, location and accessibility from the city and Narita Airport.

This is a food only shop, previous post about drugstore cosmetics so please check them if you are interest in beauty.

If you are a foodie and love japanese food I recommend visiting this types of shops and not only FamilyMart and 7eleven.

You can find all kind of foods, from snacks to a everyday pantry, pet food, beer bentos and all kind of pre made food.

Salmon, Tuna and a variety of fresh sashimi and sushi.

Fresh fish is vary affordable even if you aren’t renting or your hostal doesn’t have access to a kitchen.

You can buy sashimi or sushi cheaper and buy steam rice too, just remember to buy your own soy sauce.

Try popping out when the store is near to close as they have fresh food for sale and save some money if you are in a budget.

The freshness of the products is higher compare to a other japanese Konbini stores

And the variety of the food is better, no need to worry about food been out of stock when you have a wide range to choose from

Chirashi sushi,  salads.

A wider variety of beers and alcohol, that goes wonderful with snacks. This is something very japanese, finding the snack that goes perfect with your favourite drink, finding a balance between flavours that contrast each other’s flavours without the food or the drink to predominate over the other.

Puddings, jellies and yogurts in different flavours.

Different kinds of teas, mostly are sugar free, like Bayle tea Mugicha famously know for its digestive and diet properties

I hope you enjoyed my post, I tried to take pictures of the food prices, so you can have a rough idea of the prices of food, as this can be an excellent idea if you want good quality food for a cheaper price.
