Don Quijote now ships to the Philippines


Shopping for bargain finds in Japan’s discount stores such as Don Quijote is one of travelers’ favorite activities. After all, these stores are home to a wide array of authentic Japanese goodies sold at affordable prices. 

Thankfully, during these times when we can’t easily fly to the Land of the Rising Sun, Don Quijote is now shipping directly to the Philippines.

Don Quijote delivers to the Philippines


While we can find Japanese products in our local supermarkets, finding the exact item we want can be difficult given the limited options available. But thanks to Don Quijote, we can now check out as many ramen noodles or matcha items as we like in the comfort of our homes.
