Daiso is the Japanese version of the 99 cent store. It’s fun browsing around the aisles and picking up things that can actually be very useful.   They have all kinds of items like kitchenware, stationery, kids’ items, beauty supplies, snacks, and craft supplies.  They also have seasonal items (e.g., Santa hats during Christmas and plastic eggs during Easter).  With most items priced at $1.50, it’s hard not to leave the store without picking up several items.  The checkout area is narrow and can be difficult to move around if there are people waiting in line.  Remember to bring your own bag as Daiso charges 10 cents a bag.  In future posts, we will feature “finds” at Daiso.
