When we arrive at the supermarket in America we have to first find a parking place, which may take some time, as the lot may contain hundreds of cars.
Inside, we get a shopping cart (big) and slowly go through each section of the place, which may take an hour, depending on how much we're getting.
The American market has more household goods than the Japanese market, includig books, toys and even motor oil for cars. There is also a pharmacy there, where coustomers can even buy prescription medicine.
I've noticed that the Japanese supermarket is often freezing cold inside, in all sections, whereas the US market is cold only in the meats or frozen food departments. Why the difference, I'm not sure... (G.K)
