    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.

    1. Except that Costco Japan's selection offers a few ~exclusive~ industrial-sized picks. Giant boxes of spicy Nongshim ramen, for example:

    2. And premade pancakes:

    Where was this last Saturday?!

    3. Costco Japan also carries large bottles of Kewpie mayonnaise, which most of us can only purchase online:

    4. And, of course, enough Pocky to feed a classroom:


    Or me after a beer.

    5. You've tried combination pizza, but have you tried THIS combination pizza?!

    6. And who doesn't need a bag of bulgogi snacks?

    7. They also offer this strawberry shortcake that shoppers seem to be huge fans of:

    Seriously, they're really into the dessert:

    It's the stuff of every proper Costco Instagram post.

    8. The food court perplexingly sells slices of Hawaiian pizza, which IMO is the most American thing ever:

    9. Along with this droolworthy peaches-topped soft-serve:

    Because sometimes you're feeling a little more adventurous than chocolate- or vanilla-flavored nonfat yogurt:

    10. If your shopping trip was especially grueling, you can also treat yourself to an extra-decadent pecans and caramel soft-serve:

    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.

    Look at how tender and buttery the fish looks:

    Can you believe this decadence?!

    12. And if super-fresh sushi doesn't cut it for you, check out this chirashi:

    Like, I have never seen this much roe and tuna in one plate in my life:


    All for 1,490 yen, or around $13 USD.

    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?
