Here in Tokyo, you would find it difficult not to find a ‘konbini’ within a 30 metre radius at any given point. These open-all-hours buildings of genius are especially handy on the way back from an ‘enkai’ (party (piss-up) or the sudden realisation you have run out of bog roll. And don’t get me started on the ‘pizza-man’… Anyway, our local shut 2 months ago, only to be torn down and rebuilt 20 metres further back for car parking. Well, it re-opened this week to a big fanfare. Happy days are here again.
