Vie de France is  a bakery chain that an be found almost everywhere on the main island of Honshu. Mostly found in train stations, it’s great for set breakfast meals. Depending on the location, they cost between 400-500 yen and include a salty item (egg omelet, hot-dog, warm tuna toast, egg sandwich, ham and cheese sandwich etc), a coffee and sometimes a small extra, like a banana or a yoghurt.
