Tokyo Olympic Village Food Is Now Being Sold in 7-Eleven Stores in Japan

Ready to make a sprint to the konbini for these?

We’ve previously talked about the food served at the Tokyo Olympic Village, which we were able to see from TikTok posts by international athletes. The place practically had had two dining halls with over 700 meal options, so we can’t blame you if you felt low-key FOMO from that. We know we did! 

Well, what if we told you that you can grab some Olympic Village food, too? All you’ve gotta do is visit one of the 7-Eleven stores across Japan! (Okay, so maybe it’s not that accessible for most of us, but still.)

And this is no different for many of the Olympic athletes who made the most out of their stay.
