Don Quijote, or ‘Donki’ as they are called, are the biggest chain of discount stores in Japan. Japanese shopping generally is another great reason to visit apart from the snow, and it doesn’t get better than with Don Quijote – they currently have 377 stores across Japan at which the discount voucher coupons are valid. That includes New Chitose and Narita airports and close to most major ski destinations you might be heading to.
The store list is made up of: • 215 Don Quijote’s • 133 MEGA Don Quijote’s • 29 MEGA Don Quijote UNY’s/Don Quijote UNY’s
Don Quijote’s philosophy is “Entertainment Shopping”.
Which means they want you to have fun treasure hunting for whatever takes your fancy. From practical to the weird and wonderful only-in-Japan items, Don Quijote stores have a huge range. From cosmetics to games, electronics to fitness gear, stationary to clothes, shoes to protection like motorbike helmets, drones to stuffed toys, and so much more.
We defy anyone to get out of one without finding something they want – never mind what the family will want if you’ve got them in tow.
The range and prices are fantastic, but with Snow Action’s Don Quijote discount “Yokoso Coupon” it’s even better value – save Y2,000 (@ $AUD 26) – click here or the coupon below to access your voucher.
