Costco Japan Exists And It Looks Like A Damn Paradise

Excuse me while I pack my bags.

There's no grocery store* I love more in the world than Costco. So, imagine my utter delight when, on a recent Instagram search, I discovered that Costco has locations in Japan. 😱

*Okay, so it's more warehouse than grocery store — but in my life, Costco is more of an endearing neighborhood grocery stop than a faceless cavern of foodstuffs.

From the busy check-out counters to the food court, the Costco there looks pretty similar to what we have in the States.

11. But TBH the most envy-inducing things that Japanese Costcos offer are these huge trays of sushi:

Each of these boxes costs 2,480 yen, or around $23 USD — a goddamn steal, considering I'd pay the same amount for just two of those sushi rows.

13. Okay, but actually I lied: The MOST extra Costco food is frozen packs of ESCARGOT. 🐌🐌

14. And unlike the leftover boxes in which we US Costco members have to dump our purchases into, Japan customers can purchase vinyl bags for a mere 100 yen (90 cents) each. Because how else would you transport your raw cut fish, escargot, and other delicacies?
