With over 350 stores in Japan and numerous outlets in places like Hawaii, California, Singapore and Bangkok, Don Don Donki is one of Japan’s most famous drugstores. The mega-chain set up shop in Tsim Sha Tsui’s Mira Place II last year, and houses everything from medicine and toothbrushes to imported Japanese treats. Like its Japan counterparts, the shop is open 24 hours a day, making it a hot shopping destination for both tourists and locals alike.
