Daiso Japan is a Japanese-based retailer that specializes in cutesy cheap crap — curios, stationary, toys, kitchen supplies, cosmetics, toiletries, seasonal goods, etc. It’s an Asian Dollar Tree, with few exceptions, everything in the store is $1.50. The company has a few thousand stores in Japan and about 30 in the United States, most of which are in California, specifically here in SoCal. Their mission statement is “Constant self-denial, to improve stores and products.” Here are a few pictures I took at one of their bright, white-and-pink, fluorescent-lit stores.

They sell the usual good luck totems and tchotchkes.
