What is Daiei and what does it sell? 2010/7/26 23:29
I've seen two branches in Kumamoto and may even have been in one, but I can't remember.

Daiei is known for its low prices and its very plain looks (at least the ones I have visited).
A Japanese lady friend of a friend wouldn't be caught dead there, but if there is one near a hotel I stay in, I'll go to buy food, as it is cheaper than convenience stores.
Also a good place if you need cheap underwear, socks ..that type of things. Men clothes aren't great looking, ladies one aren't super stylish but in a pinch..they do...

Daiei is like SuperTarget 2010/7/30 15:50
If you are from the US, and you know what a SuperTarget is, Daiei is similar.

It's bunch of cheap Chinese-manufactured houseware and clothing, with a conventional grocery store inside.
