I think it's fair to Say that one of the things we were most excited about in coming to Japan was getting to go grocery shopping! I guess it's the same wherever you go in the world but there's something pretty awesome about wondering around a foregin supermarket not knowing what anything is or how to cook it! We're yet to do our first actual shop but we have enjoyed familarising ourselves (with the help of our trusty guides) with some of the essentials we will need to help us survive. The biggest differences we have discovered so far are that fruit is sold per piece (as in the price is for each apple etc), the fruit here is super-sized (apples are bigger than the size of my hand) and individually wrapped most of the time, chicken and pork is mega cheap (less than $3 for two large chicken breasts) and the snack/treat isle is to die for! It sure will be interesting to see what we come home with the first few times!
