New Signs at the Grocery Store
I buy a large percentage of my groceries from a Japanese food co-op normally. The co-op makes everything easy because it’s one stop shopping and it comes with an English list of all the foods. Everything in the catalog lists the origin of the food, which is great because these days, people in Japan need to know where our produce is grown. We particularly need to know from where the milk originates. Like all people in Japan right now, we have an idea which prefectures are safe and which are not with regards to possible radiation in the soil or groundwater.
