When it comes to Japan, the first thing that will come to my mind is its convenience stores. It is extremely convenient! You can find it everywhere! You don’t even need to worry about not having anything to eat or if you run out of some daily necessities. Not only that, paying bill, withdraw money, doing banking, printing, faxing and etc. are also part of the things you can do in there.
When I was in Japan last year in August, my first meal was gyoza that I bought from 7-Eleven. It was almost midnight when I reached the hotel. Was feeling kind of hungry and my travel companion suggested to go to the nearest convenience store to buy food. They will heat the food up for you.
All these food here in this post were almost our everyday meals *LOL* Very affordable and delicious. You don’t even need to go to a restaurant for food. If you are travel with tight budget, you can be assured that the convenience stores in Japan will not let you go hungry. So many choices to choose from.
The major convenience store brands in Japan are 7-Eleven, Lawson, and Family Mart. You can find them everywhere! We spent a lot of time in these shops too because there were so much to see in there. Just looking at the instant noodles and snacks varieties was enough to make us went “wow, wow, wow”.
It’s a must-go when you are in Japan and it’s going to help those who like to enjoy Japan without burning a big hole in their pockets.
