If only I understood Japanese -- I'd probably spend a fortune on all these interesting looking groceries. Since I don't, I stick mostly to the exotic packaged and frozen snack foods. Say what you want about French desserts, but the Japanese have really got it going on when it comes to cookies, crackers and ice treats. Sweet, salty, spicy -- or all three combined. And candies with funny names that make great gifts. ("Fresh Taste Blueberry Relax Candy" is my favorite.) There are also lots of cooking ingredients, an aisle of grooming supplies and even a few Hello Kitty housewares. Upstairs is a bakery and some already prepared foods that you can eat right there. Groceries aren't cheap, but there is always a sale area across from the cash registers where you can find a good deal on a weird snack.
