No Japanese Butter

Very strange I went to two different supers in Tokyo and they had zero Japanese butter. Seems there is a milk shortage because of soaring feed costs. I wound up splashing out for some French butter. Not a serious problem, I just use it for toast, but kind of shocking, reminds me of the time there was no rice. Has Anyone else noticed this?

      I heard it on the news, but I haven't noticed myself yet. I mostly use butter for my eggs every morning but that's about it.
