Japanese want to live close to ice cream, coffee and doughnuts

Here’s a fun survey from goo Ranking on what foreign food chain people would like to see open near to their homes. The survey was conducted between the 28th and 30th of August 2007.

Looking at the list, Subway is about the only one I’d want near to home. Taco Bell seems a curious one to appear in the list; I’m not aware of any in Japan, and Mexican food of any kind is definitely a rarity in Japan.

The still stupidly-popular Krispy Kreme Doughnuts is due to open their second shop on the 12th of October 2007 at Yurakucho in Tokyo, it seems.
