Japan is the land of superior customer service.  Shopping takes awhile longer because each item is often individually wrapped even if it isn’t a gift. Today it is raining and I made a few purchases at my grocery store for a luncheon on Thursday. It reminded me of the “bag raincoats.” I haven’t had one in a while, I guess I haven’t been shopping in the rain recently. They have perfectly sized plastic bags that slip right over the top of the paper shopping bags.
