    So many here!: Sasebo Ginza

    Ginza

    Sasebo’s Ginza Arcade, a mile-long shopping mall filled with endless Japanese specialty stores.

    Jusco department store has it all, but deals are throughout the Ginza!

    What to buy: Special deals can be found at the 100 YEN stores. Same as a dollar store in the US, but not as poor of quality items. Great place to pick up travel items and knick knacks.

    What to pay: Can be a little expensive, and be advised most sizes are made for Japanese. The do not have much for American sizes in clothing!

    The shop

    You can have a pleasant shopping experience regardless of the weather at the arcade packed with various specialist shops. It is the perfect place for souvenir shopping as well. You can buy foods, clothes and kimono as well as large items such as furniture and futon. As well as doing some shopping, you can also have a meal or take a coffee break at one of the eateries or coffee houses dotted around the arcade. On January 2nd of each year, there is a bargain sale from early in the morning called Hatsuuri and the place bustles with many shoppers.

    Sakuru City 403 Arcade or the "Ginza" as it known is over one kilometer of indoor shopping. There are hundreds of shops and a few larger department stores such as Twinkle, Jusco, and Takishmaya. Twinkle is mainly a store for the ladies whereas Jusco is a more reasonable place to shop and Takishmaya is more of an upscale department store. There are also restaruants, coffee shops, and pachinko parlors on this strip. Shimanose Park and the Shimanose Art Center are also on this strip.

    What to buy: There are a few shops that sell Sasebo produced goods.

    What to pay: You can be a frugal buyer or a copious amounts of cash spender.

    Outsider: Retro is big in Japan

    Retro is in!

    I don't really get the retro look. In the states you can go to good will or the salvation army stores. Here in Japan, teens are willing to pay big money to shop for old used clothing?

    Miffy

    If you're a fan of the character Miffy, you must buy the limited edition of the doll, Miffy in Huis Ten Bosch. It is the only Miffy doll that wears galoshes.
