Need to make a quick run to get some fresh produce or local brown eggs? Why not try Food Land which is only 1km out the east gate. Unlike stores such as the Seiyu and Daiei, Food Land is just a grocery store, which has it perks. It is never very crowed and the ambiance is very relaxing. No loud music or noisy arcades to distract you or make you feel like you are on a game show. There is a large parking lot right in front of the store that is free of charge. They do accept credit cards. I believe the hours are from 9am-9pm but do need to verify this as the hours are not listed in English. Best part about this store is that it is so easy to get to.
Directions: Turn left out the east gate and right at the first light next to the 7 Eleven. Navigate this narrow road and turn left at the first light you come to which is next to the Sukiya. Continue on this road through one stop light and then the store will be on your left. –Renée Booe July 2013
