Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore Besides Daiso

Quality discount household and lifestyle products from Japan

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 4

When it comes to stretching your dollar, Daiso is at the top of almost everyone’s list thanks to the sheer variety of quality products that they carry. But besides Daiso, there are a couple of other Japanese discount stores here in Singapore where you can get the most bang for your buck too, whether you’re looking for household items, lifestyle products, or Japanese snacks!

In fact, they even carry merchandises that cannot be found in Daiso, and with all their goods imported from Japan, you can be sure that they’ll be able to last for quite a while. Listed in no particular order, check them out here:

1. Tokutokuya

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 17

Located in Suntec City and Westgate, the humble-looking Tokutokuya is discreet and easily missed if you didn’t know that this was a treasure trove full of value-for-money finds.

You’ll have to step in to know that it’s a discount store, and most of the items have no price tag on – this means that they are by default, only $2.

From kitchen, gardening, and utility tools to stationeries, cosmetics, snacks, and quirky knick-knacks like sushi-shaped magnets, you’ll be able to find almost anything here!

They even have oddly specific kinds of cotton buds for every usage, such as ones with pointed tips for touching up makeup, wet types, and even sticky types.

Plus, everyone knows that you can get the Instagram and Tumblr-famous transparent umbrellas at Daiso, but here at Tokutokuya, you can get them in both blue and yellow hues as well, which makes for an even more unique photo!

2. Nomi Japan

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 4

There’s only 1 Nomi Japan outlet around in Singapore, and right from the moment you lay eyes on it, you’ll see bright red “$2 storewide” signs all over. While it isn’t very big, it is packed full with almost 15,000 lifestyle items and novelty products, and over 100 new merchandises are introduced every month!

Besides the usual glassware, storage containers, DIY crafts, sewing kits, and stationery, we found an interesting yet extremely useful tool to have in the kitchen – Poached Egg Cups! Just crack your egg in there and the egg pouch will keep it intact safely, and then bring it up to scoop out the egg without breaking the yolk.

For those with a dramatic flair, keep your eyes peeled for these Glowing Earrings. They come in 2 colours, pink and blue, and are basically mini glow sticks for your ears – perfect for a night out!

3. 2wo

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 14

The smallest of the lot because it is a pop-up store, 2wo is a hidden gem not to be underestimated with a comparably extensive range of products available. Tucked away at Liang Court, I12 Katong, and West Coast Plaza as of now, they offer the usual functional livingware products like homeware, kitchenware, personal necessities, and bathroom items mostly at just $2, and even have some going at less than that!

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 24They have items going at 3 for $2 as well!

The best part about 2wo is that despite its size, it still manages to offer things that other discount stores don’t carry – think never-before-seen Nissin cup noodles flavours like Chili Tomato and Seafood Garlic Shrimp, and acrylic display stands that doubles up perfectly well as makeup organisers!

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 10Do take note that each cup noodle costs $3 instead!

4. Mijyi

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 3

The final $2 wonderland is Mijyi, a bringer of all things practical and quirky from not just Japan, but also Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, and America!

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 19

The outlet at City Square Mall is currently closed for renovations, but the one at Kallang Leisure Park was just as huge and maze-like – you’ll need at least a good 40 minutes to browse through every aisle.

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 11These erasers come in scents like Cola, Mint, Strawberry Shortcake, and Chocolate Banana!

From cooking pots and detergents to colouring books and toys, most of the items stocked are imported from Japan, and they even have innovative items like food-scented erasers to spice up your desk, and a shampoo hat for young children to prevent soap from getting into their eyes!

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 23Dog owners, take note – because this is made for young children, bigger dogs can actually fit in this too!

Not to mention, Mijyi also has one of the biggest collection of false eyelashes that I’ve ever seen at a discount store. Covering almost an entire rack, they have all sorts possible, from natural-looking ones to more dramatic, voluminous ones, and even varied-length lashes for that Japanese Gyaru or Momoko look!

Japanese Discount Stores In Singapore 8All the items from America are displayed outside, with some on sale for just $1!
