I was living in Australia for 6 years, and used to live in Sydney for 5 years. To be honest, a lot of things are cheaper in Tokyo comparing to Sydney. However, I noticed that a lot of restaurants increased the price in 2 years since tax increased from 5% to 8%, and minimum wage was increased. If you stay in Tokyo long and go to restaurants or shops without choosing, you would be in the out of budget. So, in this article, I want to write about some useful information to save money in Tokyo.

Shopping in Tokyo

Don Quixote(ドンキホーテ)

The website is here ドンキホーテ(Japanese)

I am sure that you  want to buy some staff, or souvenirs in Tokyo. I recommend “Don Quixote(ドンキホーテ)” to buy some staff. It is a famous franchise discount shop in Japan. You can see the branches in a lot of places in Tokyo. You can buy drinks, food, electronics, souvenirs, cosmetic, cloths, etc etc in cheap prices. Whenever you find this shop somewhere in Tokyo, you should stop by there. You can buy alcohol anywhere in Japan. I think that alcohol rules are not that much strict comparing to other countries. If you buy alcohol here, it is very cheap. It is allowed to drink in the park, or even you can drink on the street. A lot of Izakaya (Japanese style bar) has the option “All you can drink” , so I think that Japan is a heaven for alcoholic lol

Daiso, Can-do, 100 Lawson

In other countries, Daiso is not $1 shops… However, Daiso is 100 yen shop in Japan. You can buy a lot of staff with 100 yen(excluding tax). Daiso is not only the choice, we have some other franchise 100 yen shops like Can-do and 100 Lawson. If you find them, please visit there. These are also 100yen… Amazing….

業務用スーパー(supermarket for restaurants)

If you find the word, “業務用スーパー(Gyoomu yoo suuper)” you should stop by there. There are so many 業務用スーパー and they sell a lot of staff in discount price. For example, this one is 40% off… Good job!!!業務用スーパー♪

Supermarket discount

In Japan, usually, if you go to supermarket 1 hour before it closes, they start 30%-50% discount for some food. If you are a big fan of Sashimi (raw fish cut in pieces) or Sushi, your eyes might shine. These ones are just AU$5-6 in current rate. This one is just AU$2.5-3 …. so cheap…. Good job! Super market!!!

Free-WiFi in Tokyo

ヨドバシカメラ(Japanese)

Nowadays, you can use WiFi in a lot of coffee shops(Many coffee shops didn’t have WiFi before)but you need to order something in the coffee shop. However, you can use free WiFi in electronic shops for free without password. You can find a lot of electronic shops in Tokyo, especially, in front of big stations. “Yodobashi-camera” and “Big-camera” are the big franchise electronic shops in Japan, so if you find them, just go there to use Free WiFi. Big Camera(Eng)

Food in Tokyo

Sure, if you have limited time and have enough budget, you can try for expensive and super tasty Japanese food, but if you stay in Japan long, and have limited budget, I recommend you to go to

てんや(Tenya)

The website is here ⇒Tenya(Eng)

It is a franchise shop of Tempura. They sell Tendon and Tempura with reasonable price. The Tendon on this picture is just about AU$7. Can you believe it? The taste is better than the Tendon you have in foreign countries even this price tendon…

日高屋(Hidakaya)

The website is here ⇒ Hidakaya(Eng)

You can eat some Chinese and Japanese food with reasonable price. You can see a lot of business man here.

富士そば(Fujisoba)

The website is here Fujisoba(Japanese)

You can eat Soba( a type of thin Japanese noodle. It is made from buckwheat flour) and some Japanese food with reasonable price.

やよい軒(Yayoiken)

The website is here Yayoi ken(Eng)

When I was living in Sydney, I went to Yayoiken few time. Yes, you can find Yayoike in Sydney and it is a official franchise restaurants from Yayoiken… Yes, you can have real Japanese taste here but… the price is so expensive…

You can tell the crazy price…Minimum pay is about $19(1440yen).. most of the menu are over $19…. I am sure that most of the Japanese people are surprised when they see the price…If you want to see the details of menu, please check here And let’s see the price in Japan…

Most of the menu are AU$9-$12….Yes, the price of Yayoi-ken in Sydney is more than double comparing to the original one… If you go to Japan, you should go to Yayoiken…

ファミリーレストラン(Family Restaurant)

There are a lot of ファミリーレストラン( It is called Family Restaurant…I think that it is Japanese English….You can eat variety of food here) in Japan. There are many Family restaurants’ company like “Jonathan”, ” Saizeriya”, ” Bamiyan”, “Gust”, etc, etc…. I just recommend Saizeriya and Bamiyan because they are really reasonable^^/ I drunk 100 yen 梅酒ロック(Plum wine lock) too much…..

All you can eat for lunch time

If you are a big eater, I recommend you to go to all you can eat at dinner time. A lot of restaurant offer all you can eat for cheaper price comparing to dinner time. Usually, dinner time is more expensive, but more food options, but lunch time is also good to go.

Clothes in Tokyo

I know that ユニクロ(Uniqlo) and 無地(Muji) are known as a good Japanese brand and not cheap in foreign countries. However, in Japan, they sell the products in reasonable prices(some clothes are so cheap) and the quality is good. If you are a big Uniqlo and Muji fan, you should enjoy the shopping in Japan. And if you want to buy clothes, you can walk between 原宿(Harajuku) and 渋谷(Shibuya). There are so many fashionable clothes in this area and they sell it in reasonable price. If I were female, I am sure that I enjoy it. There are so many people in Harajuku…. There are so many places you can buy or eat in Tokyo. If you buy something without thinking, you might lose a lot of money in Tokyo lol Sure, if you have short time and enough budget, you can go to expensive and super tasty restaurants, but these reasonable shops and restaurants are another choice.
