There are also tons of vending machines everywhere. Is it really worth the convenience to be that repetitive and predictable?

Whenever I ask Japanese people what they’re favorite thing to do in Tokyo is, they almost always say shopping.

Have I mentioned there are convenience stores literally everywhere? The top stores I see are Familymart and 7/11—except here they're called 7i holdings. Couldn't tell you why. It’s quite convenient in the sense that Familymarts always have restrooms and 7/11's always have the type of ATM that works with my card.
