  1. fruits in china are quite cheap. i remember that when i was staying at the home of my japanese host during my high school trip, the sweet family served me pieces of watermelon for desert. they couldn’t believe when i told them that my parents usually buy 10 watermelons every three days in summer bc they are super cheap.

    do japanese people also love organic food? as you know, we students hate it…

    • I’m not really sure how many people care about getting organic food here, but organic food is definitely becoming more common. At my local supermarket, the only soy milk they sell is organic. But I would say that Japanese people are more likely to pay attention to whether or not the food they buy is domestic than whether or not it’s organic.
