His name is well known by all Japanese people.
But most of them don’t know his partner Sancho Panza at all! Speak further, half of them don’t know that Don Quijote is a character of the prominent novel. So why they know his name???
“Don Quijote” aka “DONKI” is the most fascinating discount store group in Japan. They have more than 160 stores in Japan and 3 stores in Hawaii.
They sell snacks, clothes, shoes, kitchenware, electrics, beauty cosmetics, alcohol, tobacco, funny or sexy costumes, toys, and everything you need in inexpensive price. Everyone is guaranteed to find something up their alley within its cavernous depths.
You can save money and time to considering what to buy for souvenir!
They open 9:00am-3:00am (depends on store), some stores open 24H.
