Hi there. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to introduce JA stores.

You know what JA is? It stands for Japan Agricultural Cooperatives and their stores offer lots of stuff from local farms at great deals. It’s everywhere in Japan and of course there are bunch of places in Okayama as well.

It’s like a super market with more local veggies and fruits. Can’t help getting excited. Generally speaking prices look a bit (sometimes a lot) lower than at  super markets. To think that it brings farmers more profit through JA, it’s pretty much win-win right?

Aside from regular stuff, you may see some unusual veggies like coriander. This could be a great topping for South East Asian food.
