Japanese convenience stores, a.k.a "Conbinis" are famous to have *anything* you can think of.
It's nothing like the Seven-Elevens here in the US. Employees are highly trained, the stores are lit, clean and well made making the stores more accessible and safe for all customers, even very young children.
Products are very fresh as they are constantly stocked and replaced with incoming food. Some conbinis make fresh dishes on the spot.
So what are my 5 reasons to love Japanese conbinis?
1. Beauty products. You can find anything. You don't need a makeup purse anymore!
2. Well designed, attractive looking storefronts.
I still carry around my purse, but no joke. You can find anything you need at the Japanese convenience store.
I told you - it's nothing like the Seven-Elevens in the US.
3. All sorts of alcohol can be purchased for a reasonable price. Mixed drinks and beer in cans, whiskey, wine, sake, soju...
4. Fresh Fried Food.
The famous "Yamazaki" whiskey for $9 USD.
5. Finally, the best packaged pastries, sandwiches and bread.
I usually pack 5 packaged breads the day I fly to Japan to have the following morning. They are fresh - so they only last 1-2 days.
So there it is!
