What did you feel about convenience stores in Japan? How are they different from ones in your country?

日本のコンビニについてどう思った?自国のコンビニとは違う?

Canadian Teacher:

I love convenience stores in Japan. I always buy drinks, snacks, or even lunches at convenience stores. In Canada, you can't buy alcohol at convenience stores. 

A popular drink that is sold in Canada, which you can't find in Japan, are slushies. They are like a combination of shaved ice and sweet fizzy drinks.

American Teacher:

Convenience stores in Japan are great! They have everything you need. I remember that the beer partner snacks were great and I loved them. In Hawaii the convenience stores are more focused on hot food and snacks. There are great hot dogs with free chili and cheese and nachos!

British Teacher:

We don't really have convenience stores in the UK. We have small shops where you can buy food and some other useful things but it's not the same. Also, very few shops in the UK are 24/7. Most shops close before midnight and a lot of shops and supermarkets close before 7 or 8 o'clock. 

Australian Teacher:

Aside from in the big cities, most of the convenience stores in Australia don't stay open twenty-four hours (or didn't when I left fifteen years ago).  Also, the ones in Australia sell food, of course, but not the lunch boxes that you see in every convenience store in Japan.   

日本のコンビニはどうもレベルが高いようです。

UKにはコンビニが少ないのですね~。と、いうか日本が多いのかも?
