Bananas in a Bag

It's hard to believe that I will be leaving for a visit to America in only a few days.  Among other things, this means careful rationing and purchasing of perishable food items.  At the time of writing, I only need 3 bananas to get me to my departure.  But unfortunately, in Japan, that is not so easy to accomplish.  Why?  Because in Japan, bananas come in a bag.

This is also true of carrots.

I believe on occasion I've seen some singles, vulnerable to the passing touch and discretion of any customer, but the bag is the norm.  A piece of protection, a sense of order where one can be claimed.  It seems I'll be enjoying more bananas than normal in the next few days.
