  • You can find great deals for everyday living,

  • but today we've come to the Daiso in Shinyurigaoka and have a surprise for the kids.

  • OK so this is the largest Daiso I have ever been in

  • And today we're bringing the kids

  • And we're giving them each ¥500 to spend however they want

  • So let's go shopping together and see what treasures they will choose.

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • Ready, set, go!

  • Don't run though... No running.

  • Oh, I want to buy some of these to put in my...

  • I need a basket.

  • My budget is larger than ¥500.

  • I'm going to keep an eye open for something too because ¥500,

  • I don't know, that sounds fun. I could find something to buy.

  • I want a couple more to put in my window.

  • Oh yea.

  • But I think I prefer not bamboo.

  • As Momma chan shopped, I went to check to see how the kids were doing with their ¥500 challenge.

  • How many yen is this? Joshua, did you find something?

  • ¥300. So you would have ¥200 left if you got that one.

  • There's some lego stuff?

  • Oh yea, look at all that Lego stuff, that's cool, huh?

  • Anna, did you see anything cool yet? No.

  • No, not yet?

  • Sarah, have you found anything yet that looks good?

  • Anything at all?

  • Uh, not really.

  • Not really? Not yet?

  • Becca, what did you find? What do you have so far?

  • Let me see. What is it?

  • It's like if you mess up with a pen you can make it white again and you can write on top of it.

  • How much is it?

  • ¥100

  • ¥100, you have ¥400 more Rebecca.

  • ¥400 more.

  • I don't know how I'm going to do this!

  • How are you going to do it? I think you can.

  • Just look around enough until you find something you like.

  • How much is that? Let's see. This one?

  • It doesn't say. Where'd you get it? Go show me where you got it?

  • There it is. I think it's probably ¥100.

  • So if you get that, then you have one more ¥100 that you can spend.

  • Wow, you're doing good Dude.

  • I'm going to share it with everyone— 1, 2, 3, 4

  • Oh you're going to get that to share with everyone?

  • Joshua, that's so nice!

  • Look, you've got everything all figured out already, huh?

  • Why don't we go show Mommy, see what Mommy's found, OK?

  • Where is she?

  • Oh, hi Sarah. Oh, there's Sarah.

  • Is that one of Mommy's purchases?

  • Has Mommy even got a purchase yet?!

  • Alright, I still have to find something. What am I going to find?

  • What if you got something like this?

  • Oh, a coin purse? That's kind of nice.

  • Oh.

  • Or do you not like it because it's not so deep to see into?

  • It's kind of cool.

  • That's big. You could put money on one side and coins in the other. Eh!

  • That is a little handy, isn't it?

  • Or just get a pretend wallet.

  • Look at this... That is a girl

  • Agradável.

  • "Pleasing" in Portuguese.
