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 are also very useful and popular among housewives who want to purchase "osozai" or already made side dishes like yakitori to add to their meals. Of course these supermarkets also sell full meals such as bento boxes, sushi, and more. These large supermarkets in Japan are very spacious and display their products nicely.
