When in doubt, TRUST Daiso!

  • Living in Japan can be expensive but it doesn’t have to be. I quickly learned that ダイソー or Daiso is the one stop for shopping for literally all your needs.



    Daiso is located in most, if not all major cities, in various areas. Most cities have more than one. They are usually easy to find and is the one place you can find almost anything.

    For children
