Join us for a Japanese supermarket tour in Nikko as we showcase all of the different food items you can buy when you're shopping for groceries in Japan. One of the best budget travel tips for those visiting Japan is to regularly eat breakfast, lunch and dinner from either a supermarket or convenience store. If you visit later on in the evening or even late afternoon certain items will be discounted at 20, 30 or even 40% off the original price. This is especially true for items like sushi and tempura.

We noticed in the fruit and vegetable section that certain items can be really pricey including items such as apples and watermelons and oranges out of season. However, bananas are cheap as are many other vegetables such as carrots and leafy greens.

The best bargains for Japanese food items in a grocery store in Japan are definitely the prepacked meals including items such as sushi, tempura, sashimi and takoyaki to name just a few. Certain Japanese snacks such as shrimp crackers are also delicious as well if you're craving something salty.

In terms of beverages Japanese Sake and beer are most common but these days they also have a big foreign wine section where you can buy red wine from Chile as an example.

Overall, touring a Japanese supermarket is fascinating and one of our fondest memories in Japan was just going a few times a week to get groceries. Have you been to a Japanese supermarket before? What were some of the best bargains you fond and what did you find expensive? Let us know in the comments below.
