If you have just arrived in Tsukuba and need to buy a lot of utensils or if you just love shopping but don't have much money, here is the perfect place. It's the 100 Yen Shop located inside the Terashima Drug Store. You can find everything you need, (well, almost), cups & plates, all kinds of pottery, stationary goods, toys, tools, makeup stuff and a lot more. And everything is just 100 yen! It is definitely worth a visit. The only bad thing is that you probably end up buying things you really don't need. I know I did, but I had fun.
To get there from central Tsukuba, go up Higashi-odori towards Mt. Tsukuba and turn right at the Hiratsuka Dori Higashi intersection. The Terashima Drugstore is on the left side, opposite of the Kasumi Supermarket. The store is open every day 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
