The infamous 100¥ stores.
I love them. I usually go to one at least two times a month. I think we survived off the 100¥ store when we first arrived here before our shipment came.
100¥ is about $1.00, so yes, it is in theory, a lot like a dollar store.
But they are so, so much more.
There are some 100¥ stores that are better than others. And taking it a step above, there are even 300¥ stores, that have higher quality items.
Hey, you could buy all the gifts you bring back to the US from the 100¥ store, we won't tell!
