Japanese 100 Yen Shops

Japanese 100 Yen Shops or hyaku-en shoppu have steadily gained in popularity over the last several years. 100 Yen shops are located everywhere in Japan and stock a variety of items ranging from clothing to stationary, houseware to food, with each item priced at 100 yen. Please note with the current Japanese sales tax of 5% the total cost of one item will actually cost 105 yen. This corresponds to roughly one US dollar per item, making the shops a great source for travellers and residents on a budget.

The biggest and best 100 Yen Shop in Japan is the Daiso chain which first opened in 1991 and now have around 1300 stores in Japan. One of the largest 100 Yen Shops in central Tokyo is Daiso Harajuku in Takeshita Dori, just a few steps from Harajuku Station. Large 100 Yen Stores can be found all over Japan in major cities and include: Daiso Sapporo Chuo (South 2 West 2, Odori Station), Daiso Nagoya Sakae Skyle (Sakae Station), Daiso Osaka Nihonbashi (Nihonbashi Station), Daiso Kobe Promena (Promena Kobe, Kobe Station) and Daiso Fukuoka Kotsu Center (Fukuoka Kotsu Center, Hakata Station).
