• Young children can enjoy the play area on the 3rd floor.
• Have your fortune told on the 6th floor, in front of the escalator.
• Visit the handy shoe repair/key copy store on the 7th floor.
How to enjoy Shopper’s Daiei?
Daiei may not be as stylish as other shopping complexes, but it’s a great place for bargain hunters! The 7th floor Daiso will keep you occupied for hours, with a huge range of items for your home at a price that can’t be beat. The bookshop on the 6th floor is also a good place to spend time, but note that there are no foreign language books.
For Children: Kids will enjoy the toy selection at Daiso and the manga figurines at BOX. Younger children will be happy to play at the special kids’ corner on the 3rd floor. On this floor, you’ll also find clothing, shoes and hats for children.
For Men: The 4th floor has a large selection of suits, clothing, shoes and accessories for businessmen. Browse the large selection of business shirts.
For Women: Middle-aged women will find everything they need on the 2nd floor, including shoes, clothes, jewelry, accessories and colored umbrellas!
For Tourists: Although at first glance the 5th floor may seem to be full of furniture– it’s a great place to buy real Japanese items at a cheap price. You’ll find traditional Japanese objects such as hand-held fans, furoshiki (printed wrapping cloth), geta (wood sandals) and futon for a reasonable price. This store is aimed at Japanese people rather than tourists, so you’ll make a saving!
