Oden sale at Family Mart

You may have noticed a distinctive aroma in your local convenience stores. Oden is back as the temperatures slowly start to descend towards winter.

Oden sells by the piece and Family Mart is dropping the price of its oden to ¥70 a piece (or ¥80 for those that at usually ¥130 or over). If you are unsure of what lies in those mysterious boxes of broth that stand next to the counter, check out Jade Brischke’s primer on konbi oden here.
