Does Japan Overpackage?

Did you know that the Japan Packaging Institute’s official goal is,  “Challenging the future of packaging by means of originality and ingenuity“? I didn’t either. Yesterday we had takeout pizza for lunch. The shop asked us if we wanted to pay extra for the benefit of receiving the pizza in a pizza box. We politely refused, and this was the result:

Takeout pizza in millions of little boxes.

In highly related matters, here is a picture of my ninety-five year old grandmother-in-law eating pizza. Awww!

    I thought that a retailer would charge for the more labour-intensive option! Loving the lack of logic. I bet the shop attendants are silently praying for every customer to choose the pizza box option.
