      Whoa it's almost as if a super densely populated city which forces everyone to eat out constantly has severe competition to keep prices fairly low and can sustain that model because how many customers they get.
      >The exchange rate is 1$=150JPY.
      Great and guess what my IT job where I make 105k/yr I shit you not, only got me an offer of ~40-45k depending which way the yen swings that year.

      Try comparing US meat and vegetable prices at a grocery to Japan while taking into the average salary of a Japanese worker being around ~35k/yr USD. Living in Japan and attempting to keep a balanced diet will drive you up a fricking wall and a hole in your wallet.

        And yet their obesity rates are much much lower than the fatnited states of lardmerica, not to mention longer life spans. Japanese diets ARE healthier, and cheaper.

            I mean, if everyone else is shorter too I don't see why it would be a problem. What's the American obsession with being as big as possible? Maybe humans aren't necessarily meant to be 6'3 250 lb ogres. We're not in the wild anymore so this really doesn't benefit you. Also America isn't even that tall, Western and Northern Europe are taller

            Japanese food is diverse, their slop is awful and maybe even more unhealthy than US stuff, but there's an easy access to quality and tasty stuff.
            US is the same, in both case you need to put some effort.

            Are mutts actually this dumb wtf ?
            If you're 5'7 in Japan you're perfectly average, will live a normal life and only a very small fraction of women would reject you for that reason.
            If you're 5'8 in the US you'll be memed everyday and reminded that you're just a manlet. Women will reject you because even if they don't care, their friends might.

          >obesity rates are much much lower
          Doesn't mean all that much Africa has a low obesity rate but that doesn't mean healthy. Obesity is something you can control by just picking what you eat. It's lower for sure, but that's because of a variety of reasons and really has nothing to do with anything I posted.
          >not to mention longer life spans
          There are a few reasons for this, much of it has to do with elderly not telling anyone they died and give their children their pension check as payments to get by in life, this is a huge thing in japan that's fricked their metrics up. Not to mention, no standing army, less natural disasters, near single race to diagnose, limited migrants coming in with who knows what issues, etc.

          >Japanese diets ARE healthier, and cheaper.
          Not even, low tier bait. Most all Japanese develop diabetes, have calcium deficiencies that frick them up as they age, almost all Japanese have to get their teeth completely redone in life, most a common cold will kick their ass severely, etc etc. Please get better bait

          Please look up pension laws, the Japanese government will say they have X life span if it somehow beats Korea. Hell they have "the lowest" homeless or no homeless in Japan, they got this number how you might ask? They sent like 50 people to go ask people around parks if they know of homeless people in a few prefectures. Japanese numbers are often complete bullshit.

            kek, I remember reading an article of a guy who his his dead mom's corpse in a closet to continue collecting her pension checks, and was only caught because his neighbor reported a foul odor coming from the house.

              Yup that's pretty normal, many elderly will "go off to see an old friend" and then never return usually going into the suicide forest or some place where they'll never be found and just let their child collect shit. The gov can't really do anything because they can't prove she is dead without a body or death certificate so the kids will often get pensions for a few decades.

              Also I'd rather die at 70 being mobile with a healthy bone structure than some of the elderly Japanese you see with their backs basically in the shape of a U and can't do anything but sit in pain. "A-at least I'm alive ooooo my spine!"

        This is just about the most insane thing anyone can write. Do you know what it means? It means your entire way of thinking of what "healthy" eating is, is wrong. Japanese are healthier, slimmer, and they move better at later stages of life than you. The facts are staring you right there in the face and you force yourself to ignore it. Just amazing cognitive dissonance.

      as high as US grocery store prices are these days, I'd be damn surprised if fruits & veggies cost more in a Japanese market. BTW $35K a year is a typical salary in much of the USA, especially if you exclude dorkers and officegays. You always gotta buy fresh produce if you want a balanced diet, you can't expect restaurants to give it to you.

      I think what a lot of people fail to realize is that Japanese fast food & junk food can be just as bad as their American counterparts, if not worse. Japan is definitely not shy about using plastics, so you can bet there will be an extra serving of microplastics. Europeans like to boast about how they've banned certain food additives that are used in the US, but Japan and other Asian countries have additives that even the US wouldn't use.

      The portions are smaller
      Lots of it includes fake meat
      Most this shit is literally heated microwave slop you don't see but they spend .2 seconds on presentation making it look good
      IIRC min wage is about 7-8 bucks an hour the average wage in Tokyo is 36k USD so make of that what you will
      Most of what you see there probably costs about 2 USD it's basically a microwaved meal with either tarter potatoes or something. Most time in Japanese food is done on presentation.

      >I understand why food is cheap here but cost of living is way different
      That's kinda how the food is so cheap, everyone is more or less forced to eat out compared to eating at home. Most businesses have a endless stream of customers meaning they can do smaller profit margins while making bank still. It's kind of how you can still find huge 1 dollar slices of pizza in NYC even with inflation.

    Here my take on jap food after living amd working here for 6 months.
    Slop is slop no matter where you go. That being said if I were to compare an american convenience store to a kombini a kombini beats it hand down with possible exceptions to maybe say a wawa.
    Japanese food tend to be carb heavy and low in protein. But I've never had bad meat here and that someone who's been steak and mash potatoes for well everything.
    Pic related This is a simple meal for about 1,000 yen im having right now at an izakaya. Steak, Brussel sprouts sweet potato bell pepper.
    This biggest sin japs have healthy food wise is they drink like fish and consume way too much sodium.
    I also cook most of my meals at home since I prefer simple western dishes.

        I want to know this too. Every time I see how much cheaper food is in Japan with the yen dying now, I feel an insane drive to uproot my life and move there immediately, but then I remember I'm eating borderline carnivore super healthy from farmers and shit here with glass containers as much as possible, and I wonder if the health tradeoff will be worth it.

          Just like in the states the smaller butcheries have great cuts. Japanese cuts tend to be thinner. But you can order a more traditional cut i.e a t-bone almost anywhere. People are down on Aeon but the quality is better than say a Safeway.
          Another thing to consider food is very seasonal here and stuff out of season will be imported.

          Also I wouldn't be concerned with plastic here, they have an insane rate of recycling here. The bigger issue is heating food with plastics.

          On the topic of meat Japan is still very much vegetarian (and historically even banned meat). That being said Okinawans eat alot of pork and fish with mountains of fruit and they have one of the longest life expectancies.
