Located in the main shopping district of near more expensive shopping options like Tenjin Core or Daimaru’s Tenjin branch, the 100 yen store Daiso stocks a huge range of inexpensive products and is a great place to pick up some bargains. The store occupies the entire seventh floor of the Daiei shopping mall and stocks more than 70,000 low-cost items.
The extensive range of available products includes toiletries, cosmetics, and stationery, as well as hundreds of items which make great souvenirs; such as decorative chopsticks, wall hangings and bowls and plates which look like traditional Japanese Imari ware.
This branch also stocks clay Hakata dolls, which are popular souvenirs from Fukuoka. Dozens of shops in the city area sell them, with high quality, handmade examples going for tens of thousands of yen, but Daiso stocks a far more inexpensive version for 1,000 yen.
Once you have finished shopping in Daiso, the Daiei shopping centre is home to several other low-cost stores.
