    Have you tried Nitori? It is known as the Japanese Ikea. https://www.nitori-net.jp/store/ja/ec

    What about Saty (part of the AEON group, I think). They've usually got a whole bunch of stuff that like which you mentioned. On the frying pan, though, I've had to replace mine so many times now on accounts of having bought a cheapish one each time. When the one I'm currently using gives in (happening soon, I think) maybe it's better in the long run to get something that will actually work for more than a year, or a few months!

    Supermarket chains (AEON, ItoYokada, etc.) are the best prices I think. Also BookOff/HardOff & other recycle shops are great for 50-100 yen dishes, mugs, etc. & even have some new products. They have neat products, but avoid Loft & Tokyu Hands if you're trying to save money :p

    I'm a HUGE used store fan. They usually have brand new stuff for half the price

    In what area do you live? In Kyushu we have a lot of discount stores like Trial and Mr. Max.

    All of these items can be bought second hand at places like Off House. If you want new and cheap I would consider Seiyu again. Seiyu is the Japanese equivalent of Walmart, but the quality usually is about the same too. I saw a mention of supermarkets but I've found these to be on the expensive side if they aren't on sale. Home centers, like Conan or Viva Home, are another great option. They will certainly have a variety of these items to choose from if you have a large one near you. Second hand is probably your best bet for cheap, but many other options exist. Yodobashi Camera also has a variety but will be more expensive. Nittori has both cheap and expensive things. IKEA is also available but it depends where you live, they do have shipping though.

    Stores like Komeri, Nitori or sometimes even recycle stores sell them for good price.

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
