One of my favourite activities when I lived in Japan was visiting the 100 Yen Store (Japanese dollar store), and buying loads of cute Japanese junk with plastered with nearly unintelligeable English. The other day, Bonnie and I found such a store here in Seattle. For a mere $1.50, I was able to purchase pure Engrish hilarity.


My favourite is the flag offering fashion tips.

There's a store in the...oh damn I forget the name of it...I'm thinking Vaughan Mills mall...the stupidly big mall that has that Bass Pro shop with the twenty stuffed bears and twelve boats on display and a giant aquarium...but I digress...there's a store in that mall that sells all sorts of Asian stuff with original Engrish. It's a baffling place to walk through, just masses of unitelligable whatevers. Anyway, it exists, thought you should know. goodbye.

Sounds like you're talking about Pacific Mall. It's like a two-ish story maze of walled cubicles that all sell pretty much the same stuff for a little bit cheaper than a regular mall. Home of the pirated DVD! Note - white people will get stared at (not hostile stares, just, How-did-white-people-find-out-about-this-place?-stares) but will still receive the same formidable service due to anyone making a purchase.
When I asked, "How do I get there?", the answer I got was, "Follow the car accidents." However, I found that only the parking lot was the true danger zone.
