100 Yen shop

As the sign suggests, this sort of shop sells everyday items for ¥100. At least in theory.


In Australia we call them $2 shops. But, from my limited experience, much of what they offer costs more than $2.

What’s more, it’s questionable as to whether or not they sell anything particularly useful. Although what can you expect for the price?

Yet here in Tokyo it appears they may sell stuff of a slightly higher quality when compared to what I’ve seen back home. And for what is, ostensibly, a little less.

Still, I’m not sure I’ll be be rushing in to buy a great deal. Despite the “bargain basement price”.
