Cheap meat

In this photo I was trying not to be so obvious I was taking a photo, thus the poor quality. The awning above is of the meat shop called Jump. In the first hour or so they have huge sales on the meat. I'd assume it's on the meat that had been cut the day before. If one has studied Japanese culture, one would know freshness is very important in Japan.

The average Japanese person buys food from a supermarket or convenience store virtually everyday, I included. The meat on sale here is super fresh, compared to America where it can be sitting there for days before it's put on sale.

So for this shop, almost every morning there is a line of 20-30 people waiting to get cheap meat.

Would you line up at 10am just to buy meat? Please leave comments below.
