Pickle stores are very popular. And you can try them all for free! You pick a piece with the chopsticks, put it in your hand, then eat it.

Viennoiseries

There are a lot of European bakeries around town. A good way to cut spending on breakfast is to eat in your room. I did this every day, buying a few croissants or chocolatines and juice for about 500 Yens.

Is it a bottle? Is it a can?

Onigiri, Fanta and chips (I Love Veggi on top of the microwave)

This is the first thing I ate in japan, bought from a Konbini store (corner stores like 7-11) Onigiri are pressed rice triangles with various filling, wrapped in nori. The filling is identified according to a specific copor. These make a cheap, delicious and filling lunch. You can find a chart with the color code online and print it out, it will help you understand what filling you’re picking.

Cookies

Cookies

You can get these around temples or in gift shops. They are filled with sweet red bean paste.

Supermarket sushi and strawberries

Supermarket sushi and strawberries

All big department stores have food courts/grocery downstairs. You can get your dinner there and go back to your hotel if you are not up for a night out or if you want to cut costs. I overpaid for these strawberries, but they were well worth it. The sushi was amazing and fresh, and unexpensive for the quality I got.
