  • of all the shopping we do as a large family.

  • There's one store in particular that's more than just a normal shopping trip.

  • It's an american shopping experience.

  • But is this for in store practical for life in japan or is it best suited for the western world?

  • Welcome to cops.

  • Go, what can we buy here?

  • What indeed did not buy here?

  • Okay.

  • For the uninitiated Costco is a shopping warehouse that offers goods from all over the world.

  • They have a little bit of everything and what they have.

  • They sell in large quantities.

  • But before you go in you need to pay an annual fee to become a member.

  • Most people have to decide whether the selection and savings of Costco justifies the cost of admission, not to mention the effort it takes to get there and love your goods away.

  • Is it worth it for our family?

  • You be the judge.

  • What are we getting this for?

  • Ruth?

  • Well this is one of my favorite things because you can put it on bread with butter and bacon in the oven for a little bit and then a delicious garlic bread that some at home already.

  • Yes.

  • And I always buy the cinnamon from here.

  • It's super cheap.

  • 500 yen with this whole thing of cinnamon, cinnamon rolls.

  • Oh yeah and I buy this.

  • It's organic blue Agave.

  • It's a great sugar substitute.

  • Nice and Joshua already wants to sit down, ruth bakes and cooks a lot of our large family.

  • So she needs large packages of raw material.

  • A lot of packaging in japan is done with individuals in mind.

  • But at Costco we can buy in bulk, much like a business would want to do to get ready for all the holiday cookies.

  • Oh chocolate.

  • A lot of different types of oil here.

  • Yes, you're standing there.

  • I buy it, you buy it.

  • These are so good on salads right there.

  • Oh my goodness.

  • But we have some of those still at home.

  • Think so.

  • And this roasted sesame dressing, we always take it as omega is to our friends in the States.

  • They love it, they love it.

  • You want soup, they love in japan clam chowder.

  • Look at all that clam chowder.

  • Yeah, chicken.

  • This is a great to have on hand in case of a major earthquake because it's none needed to be refrigerated.

  • So like when the kids go on outings and they need to take a can of tuna or something, I send them chicken.

  • And if you like parmesan cheese, well you can get it preserved food.

  • Get up to seven years for emergencies, camping.

  • The dilemma at cost goes off to deciding what to buy because you'll never know if you like a product until you've tried it at least once.

  • Weird, interesting, interesting.

  • Three meals, three days, three people water to water.

  • This product sure looks interesting, but without knowing how it tastes.

  • We're gonna pass for now.

  • Yeah, I use jesse so much.

  • What do you use it for oatmeal and cookies and cakes and stuff, stuff.

  • And for those times you just need an unhealthy american meal, comfort food, mac and cheese.

  • Eo that goes a long way with kids.

  • Yes.

  • And then over here you have all types of different race and I'd like to buy the rice that's already been rinsed because that just saves me time.

  • So I buy a 10 kg bag of rice and we probably buy it at least every two months and now everyone, oh my goodness.

  • Here we go.

  • It's really heavy.

  • It's not it's not the right way, appreciate the presence of local items as well as international foods.

  • This really works well for the way that we eat, giving us the best of both switched cranberry juice.

  • Mommy's staple way.

  • I think this much cranberry juice with this much water.

  • A good way to do it.

  • Mhm.

  • Some of the cereals that we like, you don't get a lot of choices.

  • It's been years or oatmeal or backing up but I forgot my oatmeal.

  • Come on.

  • Yes, you can put it in.

  • Its heavy.

  • Your next Taco because we use that in a lot of baking.

  • Everything is involved.

  • But I like to buy honey 100% honey and then I just have a smaller container that I keep refilling but you have to have space to store all this stuff which is a problem in our tiny that's for sure.

  • And then on this side you have a lot of teens but back to that english is good.

  • Sometimes a huge green teeth in.

  • I like the flavor.

  • I don't like the smell, we know what we need to get.

  • The question is should we try something new right next to his tea?

  • Is what I like to get is on that lemonade.

  • You want one?

  • Thank you.

  • Still have like I still have one.

  • The disadvantage of Costco is that it comes in bold.

  • So if you don't know if you like it and you try some of it, you don't want the rest of it.

  • You have a lot left over.

  • But if it weren't for the fact that we have very limited storage and freezer space, we would end up buying a lot more than we already do if you're going to have a small party this section is great because these little pieces are just so good, little pizza you've ever had but they look amazing.

  • Got my favorite coffee that I really like, mix it with real poppy Belgians time out for Belgian finding like a diver or the link, they are ready for the holidays here and here we go.

  • Thank you holiday meal prep, whoa!

  • There it is, the staple of american holiday tradition Turkey this year, we're gonna need at least two, we're getting to this year 32, oh man, it's so cold, there on dude, okay close, oh that was too hard.

  • There you go and now for a staple japanese food, it's an easy meat, we just got it last time caught out gay and it was good.

  • No, some of these things you can only find at Costco.

  • This is my favorite brit.

  • I'm the only one who likes it.

  • As we approach the back of the store, we come across many of our key items, a book, bread, baked goods, eggs, milk, butter, cheese, yogurt, fruit and more.

  • There you go.

  • For the gold down that side.

  • I need to get my, I don't know the eggs are in there.

  • Oh, they moved them to be so careful.

  • Right, good look, moderate.

  • The fruit and vegetables at Costco is decent so long as you don't buy too much otherwise you can easily be left with more than you can eat before.

  • It goes bad for the writers.

  • We like bananas, grapes, apples and occasional citrus fruit cart is filling up.

  • I know I need paper child's paper towels but where Costco really shows up strong is in the back with their fresh meats and store made meals.

  • There's a reason why this section is always packed with people in japan, all kinds of seafood or even mm sushi got ice key.

  • I've never seen a white pumpkin pie before.

  • Whatever the beef here, it's great.

  • So normally I buy this with 100% beef.

  • This is pork and beans, beer.

  • There's U.

  • S.

  • B.

  • Look at that chunk of beef, wow, look at that.

  • Oh boy.

  • Oh boy.

  • Our family likes bagels for breakfast and this is a good place to get it and we often get our birthday party cakes here at Costco too.

  • Oh my look at that.

  • A wine advent calendar, a lot of stuff that you dream about.

  • Where would you put it?

  • Yeah that's where we got our pond E.

  • But not that it was, it was a different time I must say if you've never used american charcoal, you're really missing out.

  • It's the easiest thing to like muse mama.

  • They have some lego Mario.

  • Huh?

  • Oh man.

  • Whoa do you have all of those?

  • Uh huh.

  • You do what would cost will be without a giant bear?

  • It's definitely holiday time.

  • You know it when there is all kinds of toys.

  • We don't use it.

  • A four K.

  • Action camera for four K.

  • But in.

  • Yeah that's not bad.

  • Do you think it's any good at all?

  • Oh boy.

  • Huh.

  • That's funny.

  • It's a Disney one.

  • This is what warms ruth's heart I love with, do you know the real reason for the season of christmas?

  • We can find it at Costco here.

  • It is the nativity scene Joshua.

  • Who's that right there, baby jesus?

  • Right, that's what christmas is all about.

  • God, so loved the world that he gave his only son jesus.

  • Whoever would believe in him would not die but have eternal life awesome.

  • Remember when the world used to travel a needed luggage.

  • Well you can dream about those times and prepare yourself for when the world opens up again.

  • And of course clothes galore, yep.

  • We bought a good amount of clothes here.

  • American sizes, chipped the heart to tell something.

  • Alright, check out time.

  • We've got a big helper here.

  • Uh to put it all over here.

  • All right.

  • What would a trip to cost will be without food?

  • Without food at the food court stuff.

  • They have, it's always kind of changing, but you can get the hot dogs of course all the time, but everything else kind of changes packages.

  • Yes, they do.

  • Look here it is.

  • Alright, well how did that go?

  • As far as Costco trips go a little different because I'm buying turkeys.

  • So normally I wouldn't buy two turkeys.

  • That adds to the price.

  • Other than that, it's pretty normal.

  • Speaking of the price, but none of that is Turkey.

  • Turkey.

  • We got our goods.

  • We're taking it up to the car.

  • We have to eat in the car now because that's right.

  • This is a Costco with you gotta pack it in and fit it in our car.

  • Now as of covid, this is how you got to eat in your vehicle, enjoying your drink, your family and your food.
