I certainly will.
The area Im going to be touring in will be on the Japan sea side.There arent too many cities in that area.Nigata and Akita being the biggest in the region.

It's fifty-fifty... hum... Akita ?

You have won a 50Yen Voucher for the 100Yen shop.To collect your prise you will have to complete the following form and send it in by express air -mail to my office in Osaka.From there we will process your prise and then send it out to your address.Next time you arrive in Japan you have 50yen to spend at one of the many 100 yen stores around the country.

Speaking of 100 yen shops. I'm quite surprised by their quality. Sometimes I see packages of stew or curry, or instant noodles there for 100 yen that otherwise sell for 200-300 yen at the super markets.

Additionally, quite a number of products I've noticed are also made in Japan..
