Grocery Truck

An interesting feature of country life in Japan. As the nearest grocery stores are far away, this truck makes shopping a little more convenient for villagers by bringing the supermarket to them. It pops up for short periods at various locations and neighborhoods around the village throughout the week. If you hear loud old-fashioned Japanese jingle music, the truck is approaching!
