Not too sure about the pricing now due to the exchange rate. The brands I go for -
1. Old Navy (went twice during sales),
2. Onitsuka Tiger (MIJ),
3. Fred Perry (MIJ),
4. UNIQLO,
5. Blue/ Black Label Crestbridge (MIJ) used to be under Burberry,
6. Casio,
7. Agnes b. (MIJ).

Bought Le Creuset as well. All the above when the rate was good for me.

Lego sets can be cheaper. I bought my two technic sets (arocs and mobile crane mk2) there at about 20% less than SG shops.

I think uniqlo jp's bargain corner has a lot of nicer clothes than the ones in sg... and when they give discount it was pretty generous as well... was there last year.. not too sure if anything has changed thou..

MIJ = Make in Japan..

Japan Domestic Model...

Not available in Seiko/G Factory outside Japan..

With last year exchange rate, Muji was much better..I hooted some essential oil, 2 big and 2 small aromatic diffuser from them last year..This year only brought some essential oil..

but to be honest, since its winter now, japan uniqlo has mostly fall/winter wear for sale. and the exchange rate now also not that good.

a tip from a japanese friend is to go shopping during weekends as they will tend to have sales. you can also drop by GU to see!

and yoshida porter is definitely cheaper there

Yup when you go Uniqlo Japan there's more and better stuff on sale, and it changes every few days so if you stay near one don't buy anything at original price just swing by regularly and see if what you want goes on sale. They also resupply the sale and clearance items - I guess that's how they keep people coming in.
