If you miss Japan, you should go here! Introduction of a convenience store


Although there are Canadian food items such as chips, I missed Japanese food while staying in Vancouver. Even if I go to 7-Eleven, I cannot find a box lunch or rice ball! A Japanese convenience store is the perfect choice for you!

KONBINIYA on Robson Street, famous for their giant Pockysign, is 23 years old this year. The official name is, KONBINIYA JAPAN CENTER. Many of the guests are local Canadians, but Japanese people can easily get Japanese food and you can communicate with the Japanese speaking staff.

Inside the store there are tens of thousands of items, ranging from popular Pocky for Canadians, Japanese pickles, Natto, popular rice balls, lunch boxes and cup noodles for Japanese travelers. It is also pleasant to find a lot of sale items which are considerably cheaper than the regular price every week.

If you are definitely missing Japanese food, try going!
