This marks the start of a collaboration where we do coolsome stuff together. For starters, we get to go to their convenience stores and snap away at all the cool stuff they have lining the shelves.
Lawson is particularly strong in the Anime field and has done a load of collaboration with titles like Gintama, K-ON! and Madoka Magica.
Just about everybody (no exaggeration) smokes in Japan - prices are probably the cheapest in the world.
Most restaurants don't have non-smoking sections - and even if they do it's usually right next to the smoking section which isn't even partitioned off ><
Not good for asthma sufferers like myself ><
Magazines in each store are tailored to age and gender of customers.
Whenever you buy something in a Japanese convenient store - the till girl or boy pushes a button that represents your estimated age and gender.
They use this info to better tailor products for the people who use that branch most often.
