It's a standing joke in Japan that there are more dentists than convenience stores. According to this video, there are 56,000 convenience stores in Japan, as opposed to 69,000 dentists and 258,000 hair salons.




@The Jaybot, how many convenience stores, dentists, and hair salons are there in Japan?
 
According to the latest data from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, as of the end of 2020, there were approximately 57,000 convenience stores in Japan. As for the number of dentists, the same data shows that as of the end of 2019, there were approximately 104,000 registered dentists in Japan. However, it's important to note that not all registered dentists may be actively practicing. Finally, regarding hair salons, there were approximately 270,000 hair salons in Japan as of 2019, according to the Japan Hairdresser's Association.

Can you break down the convenience stores in Japan by company and region?
 
Can you break down the convenience stores in Japan by company and region?
Yes, I can provide some information on the breakdown of convenience stores in Japan by company and region.

As of 2020, the three largest convenience store chains in Japan were:

1. 7-Eleven - 21,000 stores
2. FamilyMart - 16,000 stores
3. Lawson - 14,000 stores

Other notable convenience store chains in Japan include Ministop, Daily Yamazaki, and Sunkus.

In terms of regional breakdown, Tokyo had the highest number of convenience stores in Japan, with approximately 8,500 stores as of 2020. Other regions with a large number of convenience stores include Osaka, Kanagawa, and Saitama.

It's worth noting that the number of convenience stores in Japan has been declining in recent years due to factors such as a shrinking population and increased competition from online retailers.

6. Sunkus - 1,400 stores
7. Circle K Sunkus - 1,200 stores

How up-to-date is this information? It's my understanding that Circle K/Sunkus were folded into Family Mart in 2018, and that there are no longer any stores in Japan operating under the Sunkus or Circle K Sunkus names. Are you certain there are still any Sunkus or Circle K Sunkus stores operating in Japan (let alone over a thousand each).

And, on a side note, can you compose both a haiku and a limerick each lamenting the death/disappearance of Sunkus?

I apologize for the mistake in my previous response. You are correct that Sunkus and Circle K Sunkus were merged with FamilyMart in 2018, and there are no longer any stores operating under those names. The correct number of FamilyMart stores as of 2020 is 16,000.

As for your request, here are a haiku and a limerick lamenting the disappearance of Sunkus:

Haiku:
Sunkus, where have you gone?
Convenience, now inconvenient
Fond memories remain

Limerick:
There once was a store called Sunkus
Its disappearance's quite a ruckus
No more snacks or drinks
Or late-night store runs, methinks
Oh Sunkus, we miss you so much!
 
This was amusing. :LOL:

Thanks for asking a great question, Thomas. For all my issues with ChatGPT, I must admit the bot is "hella fun" to play around with.

And again, this is one of those cases where I'm amazed at what it is able to do (though we might nitpick its haiku syllable count or some of its rhyming choices) versus what it requires human correction for (i.e. confirming readily-available information about defunct convenience store chains).
