Japanese fast food is not junk food rather index of deflation.

What is Japanese Fast food?

Needless to say Sushi, (too banal) I will say Onigiri as rice ball or might say Gyudon.


Onigiri also known as Omusubi is a snack of Japanese rice formed into triangle or oval shapes and wrapped in nori (edible seaweed). Traditionally, the onigiri is filled with pickled ume fruit (umeboshi), salted salmon, katsuobushi, or any other salty or sour ingredient. Some other fillings might be pickles, salmon flakes or tuna & mayonnaise paste.

Popularity of onigiri in Japan, most convenience stores stock their onigiri with various fillings and flavors. There are even specialized shops which only sell onigiri to take out. It is about 100-150 yen by the piece at convenience store, like 7-11, Lawson, or even small superette.

It is quite healthy food, no oil, no fat, only Carbohydrate..

The Secondly

index_ph002Gyudon: 牛丼

is consisting of a bowl of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored with dashi (fish and seaweed stock), soy sauce and mirin (sweet rice wine). It also often includes shirataki noodles, and is sometimes topped with a raw egg. A very popular food in Japan, it is commonly served with beni shōga (pickled ginger), shichimi (ground chili pepper), and a side dish of miso soup. Gyū means “cow” or “beef”, and don is short for donburi, the Japanese word for “bowl”. Especially this dish is contributed by Yoshinoya chain to be popular. is the largest chain of gyūdon (beef bowl) restaurants and one of the Japanese chains of fast food, which was established in 1899. The price is now only 280 yen by bowl.

This company is famous for index of defration in Japan. Fast food in general has become cheaper in the past 10 years or so, and consumers have just become accustomed to the fact. There seems to be an upper limit to what they will pay, and chain businesses know this. What that means is that these businesses will fall into a permanent state of price competition, even as the cost of ingredients goes up. That means personnel costs will not rise; if anything they’ll have to be cut. And restaurants that don’t belong to chains will be squeezed out. For a while Yoshinoya tried to compete in terms of quality and selection by adding new products to their line, but obviously they’ve abandoned that strategy and returned to price competition.

Why don’t you try it now?
