Don Quijote / Donki – A mega discount chain in Japan you must visit!
Don-Quijote or Donki is a mega discount chain in Japan and they have about 23 outlets around Tokyo, including at places such as Shinjuku, Akihabara, Roppongi, Ueno, Shibuya and Asakusa.
If you are looking for discounts for your purchases, this is the place to head to! Plus, you can do your tax free refunds here too!
I prefer the branch at Asakusa because it’s a larger outlet compared to those that I had visited previously. With 4 levels of shopping, it’s much easier to navigate around. Be prepared to spend at least 30 minutes to an hour here if you are really into shopping!
Inside, you will find that they sell almost everything. When you enter the building, you will find lots of snacks, food and drinks on the ground level. On the upper levels, it’s basically everything from electronics to cosmetics and shoes.
This fan caught my attention! It can basically cool down your whole body all at once. It was what I needed after a long tour around Asakusa.
Oh, there are even maid costumes for those who have a fetish for such stuff.
Don’t miss out Don-Quijote or Donki when in Japan! There will be bound to be something that you will want to bring back.
