Don Quijote

Busy day of errands here, and one of our stops was at the Don Quijote in Roppongi. Don Quijote is a discount chain store and usually a good first stop if you need beauty products, household goods, small electronics, phone accessories, unique import food items (best price on Spam in the city), and more! it’s somewhere between WalMart and Big Lots, but vertical (6 floors).

Unique to the Roppongi location is a half-pike roller coaster on the roof. Built in 2005, it has never opened due to neighbor concerns about noise and added spectacle to the area. It was still up there today, SBNO–standing but not operating.

However, the most memorable feature of this chain is the theme song entitled Miracle Shopping. Snappy tune. Enjoy.
