The American-based big box store is set up warehouse-style, with towering stacks of consumer goods stretching off to the horizon. You'll find everything from frozen pizzas and disposable contact lenses to gasoline-powered lawn mowers.
Exercise bikes, down comforters and plastic trees are half the price you'd find in Tokyo department stores. Imported appliances - from America, Europe and Korea - are especially well represented, with good deals on freezer chests, washing machines (with both hot and cold water intakes), and coffeemakers (an 8-cup machine from Philips for under Y4000).
Individual membership is Y4200 per year, covering an entire household.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
