During the state of emergency in Japan, have you been getting takeout meals to support restaurants in your community or shopping more at supermarkets?

We’ve been occasionally buying some prepared foods at supermarkets or convenience stores. Haven’t bought any restaurant takeout as we would have to travel too far from home to find one doing takeouts. On days when I might want to eat something while out alone doing some errands and essential work in an area with restaurants again no, as there’s no where for me to sit and eat a takeout.

We have frequented two restaurants for take out but mostly have saved money by buying and cooking our own food. What a concept.

I wonder how many families (ie mothers) have decided cooking at home is better than convenience stores’ (which are typically 30-50% more expensive than supermarkets) processed and packaged food.

Both.

I think it's important to support small local/family businesses, esp those that have seen their takings vastly reduced.

Been having take away with her indoors each Friday instead of going to a restaurant. Otherwise everything prepared fresh at home. I think we’re eating better than ever.

Both, but I tend to buy more from those mom and pop shops since they're the kind of businesses that need more support and their home cooking is like none other

Here in Fukuoka there has been nothing even resembling a true "state of emergency".

Now that it's mentioned, I haven't been to a restaurant in a while. I can call in take out orders, no problem.

I'm also down with the whole "pay now, eat later" idea if it keeps businesses afloat during these times.

The one thing I can't do is sit down in a restaurant and eat. Full stop.
