Is Japan expensive? It depends on where you shop and what you're looking for. Japanese Conbini (convenience stores) are everywhere and sell a surprising amount of cheap Japanese food. If you're travelling Japan on a budget and searching for Japanese snacks, that should be your first stop and get yourself an epic Conbini Haul!
Cheap Japanese snacks are everywhere, as are vending machines where you'll find all sorts of Japanese snacks and Japanese drinks including my favourites, Japanese Kiwi Fanta & Peach Fanta!
If you're travelling Japan or Studying in Tokyo, I'd also recommend Origin Bento for all sorts of cheap Japanese food at an excellent price! Just how expensive is Japan? You'll find it's quite affordable if you know where to look! See you at the conbini!

I was in Osaka, Japan for three months in 2014, and how I managed to eat on a budget was to find the small/medium sized markets in the rural districts. They had a variety of fresh foods and also a lot of grab and go prepared dishes. So, I would stock up on packages of Chicken Karrage and rice, cooked fish, sushi and meats, eggs, udon and ramen. Only occasionally I would eat out with friends or go to a bar, it kept the expenses down to a minimum.
Great video and so helpful . My wife has a small business and I have a pretty good job but we are not massive on the idea of expensive restaurants etc as it’s just not us , so whilst in Japan we will probably eat at fast food chains street food etc so this video massive help , cheers mate
