It goes against the grain to introduce something very American, as this blog is supposed to introduce things in Japan, but Mcdonald's in Japan has some things that can be only seen in Japan. I don't visit a hamburger shop so often, but I sometimes drop in at Mcdonald's to have some coffee, or to try a new hamburger.
Japan is where you can buy Mcdonald's hamburgers the most cheaply. The poster in the center says you can buy a hamburger called "McChicken" for about a dollar.
There was a section called "Mac de DS" in this Mcdonald's where you can download software for your Nintendo DS.
There were instruction brochures available for those who don't know much about Mac de DS. For instance, you can download the trial version of a game made by Mcdonald's. And you can also get coupons for hamburgers that you can get via Wi-Fi connection.
I had "Goma Ebi Filet-O", or Sesame Shrimp burger.
The hamburger buns included some ground sesame, and of course the patty had some shrimps. But honestly I couldn't taste the sesame flavor.
Japanese people like to have salad even at Mcdonald's. Those who order a "happy set" can choose to have this sweet corn.
We're now in Golden Week, when most people have one week vacation starting on April 29. During this period my city has less people because most people go back to their hometown to see their parents. And also in Tokyo you would see less people because the capital is a place where people from rural areas live. But you would still see lots of people in some hot areas in Tokyo like Akihabara.
