Watch these Seven-Eleven Japan commercials (all MPEG-1 format), and tell me:
- If you’ve never seen a Japanese convenience store before, this is exactly what they look like. Oh, and when I talk about getting a bento for lunch, it’s what she’s holding up, usually, not what you’re used to getting in North America as a “bento lunch box.”
- Don’t you want an onigiri (rice ball)? These have yummy salty salmon inside, but the konbu salty seaweed ones are fantastic when you’re feeling vegetarian. Mmmmmm, oishii onigiri (different commercial with a cute Japanese woman, whose name I’ve forgotten)
- How about some microwaveable udon?
- Or a mini-roll sandwich (mini roll sando)?
Oh, man, do I ever miss Japan right now.
