A 100 Yen

These colorful-made-in-China mugs can be found at Daiso.
Daisō or The Daisō (ザ・ダイソー) is the largest franchise of 100-yen shops in Japan-so much so that its name has become synonymous with "hyakkin" or a hundred Yen.
In Japan, 100 yen shops, or one-coin shops are similar to dollar stores in the United States and pound shops in the U.K.
Daiso has a range of over 90,000 goods, of which over 40 percent are imported goods, many of them from China. Many of these are own-brand goods. Daiso was launched in December 1977 and is headquartered in Higashi, Hiroshima City - Japan. Daiso currently operates over 3000 stores across the world.
I should have arranged these mugs before taking the picture. All I did was shot as quick as possible since it is illegal to photograph in this shop.
