Bad fur day? Japan’s 100 yen store Daiso has the solution!
Japan has a plethora of products that are weird even by the standards of many Japanese, like these big booty mouse pads Sir Mix-a-Lot would approve of, cosplay outfits for pets, or photo books dedicated to male nipples. But perhaps some of the country’s most unique products to spend your cash on are just everyday items you can find in most Japanese homes.
Our Japanese site was curious to find out if foreigners could identify some of these “strange” household staples, so they sent a reporter to interview people from different countries on the streets of Tokyo to see what they had to say.
100 yen stores in Japan are amazing treasure troves of cute, functional and useful bits and pieces you never knew you needed. They’re the perfect place to go to when you’re struggling with that “I need to buy something” feeling and don’t want to spend too much money, since everything in the store is the same price of (tax included) 108 yen. Perhaps one of the most successful of Japan’s 100 yen stores is Daiso, which stocks a huge variety of useful household goods and snacks (among some of its more, um, interesting wares).
But did you know that Daiso also exists outside of Japan? Here’s what happened when two YouTubers from California decided to share their haul of goodies from their local Daiso with their followers online!

The owner of Daiso, one of Japan’s largest 100 yen store chains, may not have the most confidence in his company, but for the most part it seems like people love Daiso. While most products are pretty awesome, some shoppers have been finding some really strange products and product displays. Join us after the jump for some weird amusement, 100 yen store-style.
A lot of people think that the dollar store isn’t worth their time in America. There is this stigma that all the products are really cheap, plus, most of the items are actually over a dollar! 100-yen stores in Japan such as Daiso and Seria, are still proving they know how to treat the thrifty shopper right, however. You’re always able to find just what you need there, but Japanese Twitter users are currently all sharing their excitement and various uses for a product you wouldn’t think you could buy for only a buck.
