Love the Nissin chilli tomato cup noodles - available at most convenience stalls. Other cup noodles also can.

Stationery like Kuru Toga mechanical pencils, Frixion pens (refills) are cheaper in Japan. Kino stocks. I aim those that cannot find in SG.

Itoya stationary shop in Ginza has got them mostly covered.. ...DH and DS can camp out there. They are relocated to nearby currently while the main shop is being renovated..
Foldable reading glasses.. Good quality and really cheap, my DH will take orders from his buddies.. These Jap made ones fold up really well.. Just bring it to your local optician to change lens..
Handkerchief..I love their designs.. from Disney to the collectors' Hello Kitty ones.. :oops:
Umbrella.. ...favourite is the samurai sword ones.. :smile: They are really lite and durable..
:celebrate:
