Won't Miss #45 - pitiful economies of scale

It's quite rare in Japan to find any sort of meaningful discount when you purchase a larger quantity of some item. For instance, if one cheesecake bar is 299 yen, 5 of them are 1495 yen. There's usually no bargain or a very tiny and inconsequential one if you buy a lot.

I won't miss this lack of appreciable economies of scale.
