Each convenience store, can buy movie/concert/sport/ski lift/Disney®️ land/Expressway bus tickets. Fujiko-Fujio museum, and Mitaka-no-mori museum of fine-arts can only buy in Loppi in Lawson.
4. Can send parcel
If you can not send it in business hours, you can send it in convenience store, instead. But be careful, packaging items such as cardboard(box), bags are not prepared in there so you have to packing before you bring it into there.

One of largest online shopping site, Amazon is accepting send box to Lawson, Family Mart, and Mini Stop. It is very convenience if you bought items that you don't want to see by your family or wants get it in other place. But they cannot accept deliver heavy items(≥10kg) and box total dimensions must be within 80cm. Also, they cannot accept more valuable items(≥300,000JPY) and not send from Amazon.
