I’m sure you’ve been to a Dollar Tree or a 99-cent store before. You’ve probably bought supplies for a party, a few toys that toddlers can be occupied with for a while, or have bought totally useless junk just because they’re “cheap.” However, if you’re looking for more useless-but-charming junk, I recommend Daiso Japan. From toilet bowl cleaners to colorful underwear garments, you can find it here. It is simply the Japanese version of the Dollar Tree but almost everything is a dollar-fifty. Well, some can go for $3 but we’ll talk about that later.
Everything is $1.50 at Daiso unless price as marked
Yes, everything is $1.50 unless price as marked. The highest price I’ve seen is about $4.00 and that’s for this mannequin below:
I don’t know how this mannequin is used but I’m sure there’s a child somewhere with a school project in need of a mannequin. Speaking of that, take your student to Daiso Japan for some school project supplies!
These photos are taken with my BlackBerry Passport, so they may not come out as good. But we went to Daiso without our camera, so I hope these photos are okay. Nevertheless, let’s get on with the adventure.
The Daiso Japan Store
The store’s layout is your typical discount store but way brighter. I’m sure the employees do their best to arrange everything neatly but due to the abundance of useless-but-charming junk, you may feel that the store is heavily cluttered.

Notebooks and etc.
For Dining and Kitchenware
You can now have your kids cook with these:
Your kids can even bake with you (or at least whisk an egg):
Or see whatever this thing does. I think it works for cake frosting.
I highly recommend Daiso for some basic cookware appropriate for a day barbecue or house party. You can also find food containers for packing school or work lunch.
If you need some cheap mugs, tea sets, bowls, glasses, plates, and all that jazz, you can find some good stuff here.
Organize your office or your home:
How about makeup and accessories? They have that too!
How about these colorful things?
Daiso Japan also has some tasty snacks!
We sometimes go here if we need some work or study snacks. They’re delicious and cheap. Thankfully, there are a few Daiso stores in our area. Here are some of Daiso’s snacks:
Again, I apologize for the grainy photos as we forgot our camera at home. But I hope you enjoyed looking into this eccentric store!
So this has been our adventure at a Daiso Japan store. Have you ever been to this place? How about a place like this? What do you usually get or what do you go here for? Leave us a comment below!
