"Nationwide supermarket sales fell below 13 trillion yen last year for the first time in 21 years, according to the Japan Chain Stores Association. Adjusted for changes in the number of stores, supermarket sales fell 4.3% to 12.835 trillion yen last year, the 13th straight year of decline. Nationwide supermarket floor space has almost doubled over the past 20 years, however."
