This week’s Conbini Monday features a Happy Lawson store from Yamashita Park, Yokohama. As Golden Week has started in Japan, many stores are not stocking a full range of goods and new products are thin.
This Happy Lawson store carries some interesting goods that you won’t find at your regular stores.
… and a few new pickups from my local Family Mart as well …
Do you like “themed” stores like this Happy Lawson or prefer the regular stores?
What is Yokohama 001 about? the good looks really cute!
It is an organization set up to promote goods for the Yokohama brand. They decide the goods once every 2 years.
What is golden week?
Almost looks like a short jacket.
RT @shibuya246: Conbini Monday Wk52 http://bit.ly/8ZQQpV Products to advertise for the local population. Looks like a minimum selection. To bad they had to cancel the Evangelion Lawson theme in Hakone, that would have made for a great post. It’s good to see what other areas offer in their conbinis. even around here they don’t have that many baby snacks in the 7-11 stores around here. To answer Kris question, Golden Week is a set of 4 holidays celebrated in Japan. Here is the wiki link for a description and meaning. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Week_(Japan)
Well it’s great to be able to post again, but I am still having a few problems logging in.
Yay, 1 year of combini weeks! Guess that means I’ve been following the site for a year. Time flies quickly~
yes, indeed. Time goes so quickly. Wk52 came around very quick. 🙂 Thanks for following along.
I am a little partial to the kinoko no yama treats also. Our convenience stores in Australia are so boring by comparison. They have the perfect opportunity to do some marketing but don’t take it for some reason.
Too many meat pies and sausage rolls ?
I want that puppy plush from the first pic if that is a puppy plush?
One of my favourites!
Have you checked out the gooz on nihon oodori? I recommend this for your next combini adventure.
