Lawson Store 100: A Cheap Snacks' Paradise!

Many people know about Japan's 100 yen shops but much fewer people are familiar with the 100 yen "konbini" (Japanese people's way of saying convenience store in short). Lawson has a category of stores selling products exclusively at 100 yen. As you might expect, these stores are particularly popular for cheap snacks and drinks, but they also have all kinds of products including meat and vegetables and non-food items.

100 Yen Lawson Convenience Store

You'll recognize these store by their green banners in most big urban centers in Japan (Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka to name a few). Everything inside is listed as 100 yen but prices are actually 108 yen with the consumption taxes.

Popular Products

If you want a cheap melon pan, this might be the place for you to get it! you can get two in one pack! Furthermore, you can have it melon or grape flavoured. "Melon" in the name refers to the form of the bread but usually it does not have a fruit flavour.
How about some double chocolate ice cream? The size is pretty generous for the price!
You'll often see limited-edition seasonal products such as this mango frappe which was very popular during the summer.
Cheap noodles and frozen meals. The toppings are kind of on the light side but for 100 yen, why not... Everyone feels cheap and lazy sometimes.
You can find interesting combinations for onigiri (rice ball) such as takoyaki onigiri, nugget onigiri, and gyoza fried rice onigiri (like the picture above). That could be the best choice especially when you crave for both delicacies at the same time. Not so bad for someone that is on a diet too.
Cheese and cod fish sticks! Sounds a bit strange but people who've never tried them rarely dislike the taste. This is a popular snack to have to accompany alcohol.
Another product of the same kind is this Shioage Mochi which means salted deep-fried rice cakes. These are kind of the Japanese equivalent to potato chips.
Salted cuttlefish jerkies are very chewy. They have a low fat and a high protein content so one might even say that these are actually pretty healthy. But there's a catch: they go a bit too well with beer.
Baked sweet potato is one of the popular items at the store. It is good for a quick snack. Also, it is warm enough to keep your body warm while holding it in your pocket during cold seasons.
As for the drinks, you can get the standard convenience store pet bottle teas and soft drinks. You can also buy alcohol such as this Strong 9 which is a fruity vodka-based drink with 9 percent of alcohol. Just 100 yen!


There are many more products at the 100 Lawson Store! You can even buy fresh fruits and vegetables in small quantity. If you like exploring Japanese convenience stores, also have a look the article below.
