It's still better than the before, the but the sky keeps turning purple on me. It was an amazingly overcast day, which kind of destroyed all the pictures.

Can you get fruits for cheap somewhere in Japan?
When the doctor asked me, if I heard voices in my head, the voices said "tell him no!"
Japanese railways make me think of Valencian railways so much! :D

I'm usually all for hunting for a good bargain, but in my fruit experience (which is vast since I don't eat meat) you get what you pay for in Japan. The sad thing is, that store isn't the most expensive. It's definitely above average. Quality is good, but not excellent. Bananas are fairly priced and taste good, but their avocados suck massive balls. If I really want to cum in my pants when I eat produce I go to Kinokuniya. But, I've left there 6000 yen short and only a bag or two of fruit. O_o It's ridiculous, I'll admit, but it does taste better, plain and simple.Can you get fruits for cheap somewhere in Japan?

Do they even sell fruit like strawberries and raspberries? I bet they cost even more :nod:
Yes. Strawberries are pretty cheap this time of year. You can get a nice "pack" for about 400 yen. I've got some in my fridge now. Raspberries are always expensive. However, I don't remember them ever being cheap in the US either.
Maybe it would be cheaper without all that plastic packaging all over it! I thought for a recycling nation that would be a bit of a no-no?
Dude... that's nothing. If you buy a box of crackers, the insides of them are wrapped in packs of 5! Japan is the king of over packaging.I thought for a recycling nation that would be a bit of a no-no?
i love "pricing signs that seem a little redundant" in super markets.
"STRAWBERRIES!! 400 YEN A PUNNET!
TWO FOR 800 YEN
THREE FOR 1200 YEN
!!!!! < . < "
Hey, sometimes you only want 5 crackers, and also need the rest to stay fresh in case of nuclear holoca- I just realized this sentence is going in a very bad direction.

hoho, the wife is quite protective of what is left of her NES collection. She'd had a huge collection but lost a whole chunk of it due to a very dull and not very interesting incident.
Anyways, so - she had had what was left in a big plastic box - and it had been put of arms reach. However, i finally got to peek inside, quite fun and a bit like xmas. Iphone photos :/
some rarish items, mostly just fun games :D Played an unhealthy amount of bungling bay last night :/

This is the land of redundancy though.
