In Tokyo, we do a lot of shopping at Daiso. It’s a 100-yen store, something of an equivalent to American dollar stores, except that some of the products are not garbage. Part of this seems to come from the way Daiso buys up big remaining stocks from failed companies, which is a bit depressing. But at least the stuff isn’t going to waste. Now there’s a Daiso right in downtown Seattle, for some reason. I’m certainly not complaining; cute, affordable, decent-quality products like the stuff they sell here are something I really missed from Japan. Now I have some cute Japanese-style lunch boxes for bringing food home to Piroko. Also, “Stationary”.
