They are truly " convenient"! There are over 35,000 konbini (Convenience stores) in Japan. With large chains like Lawson and Seven-Eleven, these ubiquitous 24-hour retailers play a major role in daily life in Japan. They usually have surprisingly high-quality prepared food, such as sandwiches, sushi, steamed buns, bread and snacks – very fresh since the food is replaced 3 times a day.
