Convience Store Finds in Japan | TILT

I’ve been to Japan thrice and one of the things that I truly enjoy is going to their convinience stores and I tell you there are a gazillion of this out there! Just walk around the area a little bit and you’ll stumble upon a “konbini,” sooner rather than later. There’s plenty of variety & well-stocked Shelves. You’ll find almost everything you need from food, to beauty products and (even R-rated) magazines. But to keep this post in-line, I’ll only be talking about these top 3 yummies that I found. And I swear, if hording was illegal… I’m guilty as charged.
