Local Grocery Stores and Large Supermarkets

Supermarkets in Japan can be divided into two broad types: local grocery stores and large supermarkets. The local grocery stores are much smaller but still sell all kinds of groceries. The supermarkets in Japan though are pretty impressive. Many large scale supermarkets are able to provide great variety of groceries and household goods at a low price. Because these supermarkets are corporations rather than independent grocery stores, they are able to stock its inventory at a lower cost.

Japanese supermarkets not only offer a wide variety of fresh produce and groceries, they also include osozai or pre-made side dishes like Yakitori for shoppers looking for a quick bite. Supermarkets also offer various to-go lunch sets like bento boxes, sushi, and more. Not only are Japanese supermarkets very large, but they also pay a great attention to detail to ensure their products are displayed in the best way possible.
