100-yen shop

12/03/2006

| | More

In Japan, 100-yen shops sell a wide range of products and as the name says, everything costs 100 yen (105 yen tax included, that is about 1 dollar), with very few exceptions...interesting, isn't it?

The articles are obviously not of the best quality but they're definitely not crap and the quality-price ratio is unbeatable! And the 100-yen shops don't have any sort of bad reputation, everybody buys stuff there and there are so many of them that it's always easy to find one nearby, notably in large supermarkets and department store, which generally have a 100-yen shop section. They sell just about anything, here are some pictures so that you see for yourself :

Of course there's a lot more, but I wasn't going to take 150 pictures...

I've bought tons of things there, I could list everything but a picture will be self-explanatory, so here are my 100-yen cooking utensils:

Two of the above articles cost more than 100 yen, can you find them?

The funny thing is that, since everything costs 100 yen, some articles that cost less than that in standard supermarkets become therefore more expensive in 100-yen shops. I'm not sure whether my last sentence is clear, but I'm tired and it's not clear in French either...

And before anybody asks: no, if I need to buy gifts, I'm not going to a 100-yen shop!
