Japanese Kombinis and Food

Food was probably my least favourite part of the holiday just because I was trying to stick with my vegan aspirations and I found not being able to read labels made the process super hard. I'm sure there was a lot more I could of ate and a lot of things I ate that were definitely not vegan but next time I think I might put in a bit more research effort before heading over. Since we were on the road most of the trip, Kombinis became an easy breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner option, so this post is an ode to them :)


On a random side note, I was pronouncing the kombini above, like the drink sunkist (but more like sun-kus) when we got pointed out its actually pronounced 'sunks' oops!

When Damaris and Dani visited Japan they made a post of all there snacks they ate in Japan, which I loved, I did a similar post of our Malaysia/Singapore snacks and so for this trip I also made sure to take lots of food photos (mostly on my lap) which I've put together below, gif style!

  1. When I was in Taiwan a few years ago these little convenient stores were also a lifesaver for me to get quick meals :)

    1. and they were super helpful for us with our language barriers because the process is so streamlined and easy! I do think in comparison to Australia they also seem to stock healthier type food as well which was another plus - although there was lot and lots of junk food too!
