The store said they are “totally cool” with people taking pictures in front of their storefronts.

But they warned that the turn into the store is tight and advised motorists to park in reverse only.

See it for yourself

Although this is Singapore’s first Fujiwara Tofu Concept Shop, the concept is not new.

Fujiwara Tofu Cafés opened last year in Los Angeles and Subang Jaya, Malaysia.

At these locations, fans are immersed in the fictional “Initial D” world with posters, miniature cars, merchandise and car model decorations.

It’s a great hangout spot for those who enjoy arcade racing or even just to have a chill meal with friends.

Like the original tofu shop, Fujiwara Tofu cafe in Malaysia also serves tofu-based snacks.

While it’s not yet clear what the Singapore concept store has to offer, here’s how you can shop the window and earn your own money:

There is no specific way to find out individual food concern. Many people express their concern many ways that are not familiar to them such as; additives receive more attention than the fat because people have less control over additives. So, people of different ages, gender and educational background will differ in health and food issues as their familiarity and control are different.

Women are more conscious about food and health issues than men. They are largely responsible for cooking of food for child as well as all for other family members. Moreover, during shopping they have to harmonize the price of foods and nutrition needs of all the members of family.

In Australia, majority (80%) of the shopper of main foods are women. Similarly, elderly and middle-aged people have more experience about food associated health diseases. So, they concern more about this issue than the young people.

Older people have diverse concern than other age group. They are aware of cleaning, bacteria, fruit waxing, safe drinking water, manufacturing company, import and long distance transport of foods, poverty in Australia and other countries. However they pay less attention in reliability of food labels.

The consumers’ concerns in New Zealand showed similar patterns as in Australia. Women are mostly (75%) engaged in food shopping. Here safety issues are dominating concern of people while concern for poor people and other got medium and food associated heart disease and cancer got lest concern.

Concern of people older than 45 years ranged from food regulation, fat-containing foods, shortage of home-made foods, chemical residues, real cost of food production, and wastage of food to food-scarcity in poor countries. Interestingly, younger people are more concern about the time spends in shopping.
