Foreign Friday

Typical Neighborhood Grocery Store
Misawa, Japan
Autumn 1979

These stores were very dark inside and crammed with everything imaginable. It was fun to roam through them to find unique food items. 

Notice the vending machines to the far right. Vending machines were very common throughout Japan. Specific machines sold beer, nectars, magazines, cigarettes, and soda.


  1. It looks a lot like the little shops in Europe. They also had everything under the sun crammed in a little shop :)

  2. Actually, it reminds me of a crowded, foreign version of a little store in the City that has been a fixture for at least all of my life...

  3. So cute! It reminds me of the typical neighborhood grocery store in the town I grew up in.

  4. It does indeed look crammed full and love the Coca cola sign on top.
