When you come to Japan, you would like to buy the cheapest souvenir for your friends and relatives.
If you go through Ikebukuro station,you should firstly go to the following Daiso 100 yen shops for these shopping.
Daiso sells a wide range of 100 yen goods. It looks like dollar stores in other countries. However sometimes they put a price tag such as 300円(300Yen+ tax) or 400円(400Yen+ tax) . If you do not find any price tag, it means that the product price is 108 yen(including tax).
They sell 99% private products and they are producing more than 700 new products in every month.
●How to find products
However,when you go to quite big Daiso 100 yen shops,I think difficult to find products so I tell you,how you ask the products to shop staff.
1.Please show your finding products on your mobile phone.
2.And then ask a shop assistant,do you have this products?:Kore arimasuka?(これありますか？)
3.After that shop staff might bring you to the product shelf.
4.But if they do not have the products,they may tell you that sold out(urikiremashita:うりきれました) or no stocks(zaikoga arimasen:ざいこがありません)
Daiso 100 yen shops’s case, if they say sold out. It means that you can not find the products forever otherwise if they say no stocks. It means you can find the products a few days later(if the product is really popular, you will find it more than one month later).
