Is anyone else over here in Japan (Kansai specifically) living and eating primally? I ask because, though it's relatively easy to find seemingly good food in the grocery stores, most stores tell you almost nothing about organic / pastured / natural / free range and the like. For instance, I've tried to find pastured / grassfed butter, but it's been entirely fruitless. I can find many types and brands, and they'll tell you where the milk is from, but nothing else... the story is the same for meat: it's from so-and-so prefecture. Great. How was it raised though? Eggs are a little better, but only marginally. The story is best for fish / seafood: wild caught vs farmed; fresh vs frozen.
Basically, it's easy to know if something is domestic or foreign, but I've had almost no luck finding other vastly more important information (IMO). So, if anyone has any tips for finding more ideal animal products and produce in Japan, or can comment with some authority on how most domestic animals are raised, I'd be very grateful.
The combination of seemingly lax food labeling laws and a general lack of interest in non-industrial farmed food here is pretty frustrating sometimes. But, I still eat primally, I just have little to no information about how what I eat was grown / raised.
