I read about Daiso on the Internet long before I went. 100yen stores have a reputation for being better than those elsewhere, and in my experience, they usually are. Daiso didn't really live up to my standards though. Call me old fashioned, but when a place advertises itself as a 100yen store, nothing in it should be over 100yen. Their products were nice as far as that goes, but the fact that 100 ... Read More
This Daiso isn't bad, per say, but there are better stocked and more interesting Daiso stores in and around the city. Try the massive behemoth in Harajuku. Or, if your in the area, the Daiso near Myoden station is small but has great prices for things that are 10 times as much elsewhere.
I love this Daiso. I always do some souvenir shopping for home whenever I come here. The last time I visited the upper level had mostly craft supplies and the bottom had mostly housewares. In the basement they have a sticker photo booth, though they might have taken it out since I last visited. It was really cute and was a great souvenir to show to friends and family.I got some cute scarfs and... Read More
Feeling hungry? cold? or just poor? Then 100 Yen shops are the place for you! No where else will you be able to feed yourself for under 200 yen!
But in all seriousness, it's a very good place to pick up pasta, spices, sauces and snacks. As well as winter wear such as scarves and gloves at low prices (ranging from 100-500 yen based on quality). Not to mention kitchen ware (except for pots and... Read More
Daiso is the best 100 yen shop in Japan by a long shot. I know a guy who fitted out his entire kitchen for less than 10,000 yen, with nice looking dishes too. I buy my sunglasses from Daiso. 100 yen sunglasses mean that if they break, scratch, bend, or get lost or stolen, its not big deal. I also buy six pairs of them at the same time. Daiso is like that. It is an excellent place to buy a bu... Read More
I have been to my share of 100 yen stores but I think that this one has the best quality products... this isn't to say that it is high quality, but it's better than the norm. It's full of the usual array of things you need and things you need (bathroom cleaners, sponges, etc) and things you don't need at all (see the posted picture that has something pink and cute on it). The level of useful thing... Read More
Daiso is an excellent 100 yen shop located in Sunshine City. It offers a variety of items from housewares to food to office supplies to general cute stuff. It is a little crowded though (or it was on Saturday evening) as mall goers comb its wares.
My friend and I took particular notice of photo frames of excellent quality, onigiri makers, and lunchboxes for much, much less than what we’ve foun... Read More
This Daiso located just past the main entrance of Takeshita Dori and is massive with four floors of pure goodness and exciting new discoveries. I can't come into this Daiso without walking out with at least a few treasures and every time I go to Harajuku it's inevitable that I will stop in. In fact, this is such a great Daiso that I make special trips to Harajuku just to come here.
The Dais... Read More
Daiso is the absolute king of the 100yen stores in Japan, and the conveniently located outlet in Harajuku should be on anyone's list. It is virtually impossible to give a full recount of everything on offer, but suffice to say that not only will you find what you're looking for, but you're also likely to find a lot more things that you never knew you needed.
With an approximate 60% share of th... Read More
100 yen shops are essentially the same as American dollar stores, just cheaper since 100 yen is little less than a dollar. Daiso was a smaller 100 yen shop but in no means small. They had all sorts of various knick-knacks, food, and toys. There also was interesting signs, clothes, and basic household necessities. 100 yen shops are merely fun to go in and take a look around because they have all so... Read More
Daiso is a "100 yen store." However, unlike the 1 dollar store equivalents in the U.S., things at Daiso can be practical, high quality, and not necessarily 1 dollar. "100 yen" basically means it's a really good bargain. There are very inexpensive table settings, containers, comforters, gardening supplies, toys, even fireworks - Matsuri is coming up. I saw a lot of foreigners too, which probably is... Read More
