$10 Japanese Supermarket Meal Challenge! ?

In this video, we challenge ourselves to a $10 Japanese Supermarket Meal Challenge. The goal? To show you guys just how much pre-made food you can get at a Japanese grocery store for just $10 (or the equivalent of ¥1100) and to also show you all the variety of food available.

When it comes to buying a supermarket lunch in Japan, there is no shortage of options! There’s usually an entire section dedicated to ready-to-go meals that are both delicious and affordable.

These types of meals are very popular in Japan because people can just pop out during their lunch hour and not have to worry about meal prep at home. It also helps that these meals are very budget-friendly so people don’t have to feel guilty about eating out or not cooking.

Along with our friend Rob, the three of us went to our local Japanese supermarket, Olympus, and walked the aisles in search of food. We wanted to show you a variety of appetizers, mains, desserts and beverages, so we tried to choose different things to show you guys.

There was a section with hot meals featuring things like fried rice, noodles, grilled fish, tempura and yakitori, plus there was also a section with cold meals like sushi trays and salads. For this video, we managed to grab a little bit of everything.

Two of us came under budget and one of us came in over budget by just a few yen. At the end of the day, we realized that you don’t even need $10 to have a good meal in Japan – you could easily do so for $5 and still feel satisfied!

We hope this Japanese supermarket meal challenge gives you a few ideas of how you can eat on a budget in Japan as well as what you can eat. Bon appetit!
