Gaijin sing their love for the Conbini (Convenience Store)

While my first impression to this video of two non-Japanese guys singing about their love of the conbini (convenience store) was met with an “eh?”. I realized it was a bit hypocritical of me because even for me, I have constantly stated my love for Japanese convenience stores and how the ones in the US pale in comparison.

From finding an inexpensive place to eat (which is essential for those who want to blow their wad of yen on other things in Japan) to the special ichiban kuji every month, paying a bill or getting money, Japanese convenience stores are essential and so darn convenient!

So, for those who want to show their love for conbini! You go for it!
