Here is a quick overview of some purchases from our first day in Tokyo, Japan. The first item I (Milla) got was this cute mini backpack. I knew I had to have it the moment I saw it! The backpack was the perfect size. Practical, as there was enough space for my essential things (camera, water bottle, wallet etc.) and it was light enough to carry around, especially during vigorous days of sightseeing and shopping.
The Daiso store at Arca Kit was among the stores that we visited on day 1 . We think that you’ll have to have a GOOD amount of self-control if you manage to not buy ANYTHING in there.
Let us just tell you that the moment we set foot in there, we knew that most of the Japanese Yen in our wallets, would be gone by the time we’re done in the store >_<
As the entire seventh floor consisted of Daiso, we could have easily spent hours in there. We filled half the shopping basket, with everything from kitchen related to beauty items and snacks. Then the rational part of us took over, and we knew that it was time to head over to the counter, since we didn’t want to fill up our suitcases on the very first day.
The shopping prospects seemed very (or maybe too promising even) here in Tokyo. That got us to thinking on whether our wallets and suitcases will make it to end of this trip…
Stay tuned for our next Japan post!
