Shopping in Osaka.
In Fukuoka pref., I lived there until this March, we can get vegetables inexpensively. Of course they are fresh very much and tastes very good, too. Coming to Osaka, what I am surprised at is that prices of vegetables at supermarkets are very very expensive.
For example, I could get a head of lettuce at a reasonable price, about 100 JPN/a head in Fukuoka. However purchasing a same one in Osaka, we must pay for it about twice or more! I like vegetables very much and I always make a salad and eat it at meals. The environment I belonged to before made it available. But now I have to consider whether I can get them or not. To think about it, I often stay at a supermarket about for an hour when I go there; Fortunately, A package which contains many kinds of vegetables is often sent to me from my parents’ home in Fukuoka. So that I can get eat many vegetables without paying for them much.
Like vegetables, prices of other ingredients, meat and fish, are also decided much higher than these of Fukuoka.
In addition, frankly speaking, I want no to buy fish at a supermarket in Osaka… because they don’t look fresh… Fukuoka is faced to the sea and it has many market dealing with fresh, very fresh fish. And therefore we can get fresh fish in very low-cost. Of course they are very delicious; I could eat row fish, it is called “Sashi-mi” in Japanese, whenever I want to eat. But in Osaka, “Sashi-mi” is very very expensive and its color looks not so good… I have to put up with getting several ingredients to get a pack of row fish sliced to eat as “Sashi-mi”. And it looks not so delicious…So that I have never eaten it since I started to live here! Perhaps I have to get it at department stores if I want to eat good one as well as in Fukuoka.
On the other side, about meat, it is also sold at high price; I thought it was natural that pork sliced thinly sold about at 68~78JPN/100g. But in fact it is sold at 88~108JPN/100g at least here! Looking at the price at a supermarket, I thought it was something wrong and after that I thought I came to a supermarket which was regarded as a high-class one by accident. But after a while, I realized that it is ordinary price in Osaka…. So that I often buy packs of meat labeled “Sale!” “Half-Price!” now.
Oh, I have to go out to school soon. I have lots of things about my present daily life, so that I upload articles when I have time to do that.
