i'd love to see 100 yen store items. you know, the cheap fun little stuff?

affordable bento items. i hate seeing cute stuff at 20-30+ bucks.

casual (everyday) yukata. not costume, not "vintage" (aka more money)

everyday geta! last pair i bought (only ones i could find) were made of a soft wood that is falling apart due to little rocks getting embedded in them

educational stuff(think the japanese study section of j-list)

pretty much, affordable cool stuff. it doesn't just have to be anime related.


What you're looking for is all Made In China. And really, you get what you pay for.

Yukata are never cheap unless they are machine made in China, and even then they are quite expensive, even in Japan. Vintage ones are usually hand sewn and last forever, so worth the money. Japanese-made cotton is vastly superior to most Chinese cottons. Sometimes if you're lucky you can find a cheap yukata on ebay, but watch for shipping costs. There are some bargains to be had if you're diligent!

Geta are often made of paulownia or other soft wood and meant for one season's wear, so yeah, they do fall apart. I go through at least a pair a year, just doing shows.

I WISH I could sell the items you want for cheap, but the fact is nearly half my cost is just shipping stuff out of Japan to the US. It is VERY expensive to import these things, even if they start out cheap in Japan.

Just to back up what kimonomomo's saying here - Ichiroya, one of the most reputable vendors out of Japan, recently listed a bunch of adorable new casual yukata and obi sets.

Check the prices.

This is what what you're going to pay for brand new "not costume" yukata straight from Japan. Vintage are usually less expensive.

I managed to snag a brand new high-end yukata a few years back on sale for 50,00y. It's more than I've spent on many of my vintage kimono and I consider it to be a great deal for a brand new item.

I know this is nearly impossible considering how rare they are...but...I'd kill for Hetalia plushies.

Well I'd consider it at least... ^^

Loot I'd love to come home with:

Figures:
Yui Hirasawa figma
Hatsune Miku 2010 Sega Prize ver.
Vanille, Lightning and Reimi Square Enix Play Arts figures
Gundam 00 character figures
Azusa Nakano figma
BRS figma

Manga:

Other:
Like it goes every year, I always find a million things that weren't on my list- and I usually return home with a mostly completed list and a ton of other great stuff. I wish to find tons of great stuff again this year. Some great character goods, maybe some new Doujinshi, quality figures, rare finds, oh- and that oppai mousepad I've been wanting for forever~  XD

Wish they had more Cyndaquil plushies since they all sold out on friday. Also wish there were more Ramune flavors sold other than the packs. (Melon, strawberry, original and there was another)

Not junk food would be nice like the poster above said, bento boxes would be awesome, just need a cooling unit to keep them in. Belts would be awesome, any kind, seat belt, black belt, a belt. Cosplay clothing not limited to popular series but I could imagine the prices of though being 100+...
