    1. I re-uploaded the video because the quality of the live feed was poor. However, I will be posting more videos on a live stream that’s currently available at qik.com/benmirin/videos. This will soon be available here on the blog as well.

  1. Dear Ben, Well, we are buried in snow here – the most that I can recall in years! You did a great job on the video about the store. Rick and Betty Ann

  2. Hi Ben, I have 3 French coworkers now tuning in to your Nanae blog, one of whom has a Japanese wife. We all agree that your videos are amusing and informative, great reporting! Keep it up!

  3. Hi Ben. I was so surprised at the staff in the shop allowed you to take video. By the way, what kind of stuff can you get in 7-11 in the U.S ? I thought the convenience store is exactly same in everywhere, if it has a same name.

    1. Good question, Kenny. To be honest, I don’t go to many convenience stores in the States because they’re not very attractive places to visit. The food isn’t so fresh most of the time.
      However, you can sometimes buy bath products and toiletries (shampoo, toothpaste, cosmetics, etc), and the food can be tasty if you’re in the right mood for it.
      Many times these convenience stores are attached to other service facilities. Gas stations are a prominent example.
      But I invite any Americans reading this to contribute. I am by no means an authority on convenience stores in the US…
