I don’t know who Don Quijote is (or who the man behind Don Quijote is), but whoever he is, he is a very quirky fellow!
Don Quijote, also known as “Donki,” is a chain of discount stores in Japan that sells, well, just about everything: food, clothes, accessories, cosmetics, toys, costumes, party kits, condoms, sex toys, nose-lifting clips, penis-enhancing briefs, pig and horse face masks, butt-shaped pillows, Michael Jackson face masks in black AND white, and… you get the picture.
The Don Quijote branch in Akihabara is an 8-storey building of extreme randomness. On the 1st to 4th floor, you can find a miscellany of cheap knick knacks, while maid cafés and cosplay shops occupy the 5th to 7th levels. At Home Maid Café is located on the 5th floor. On the 8th floor, there is a theater where the girl pop group AKB48 performs nightly.
After walking around in Akihabara, checking out the toys at Mandarake, and having dinner at Go! Go! Curry, Mike, Paula, and I explored Donki, where I felt like singing a line from The Little Mermaid’s ‘Part Of Your World’: “I’ve got gadgets and gizmos a plenty / I’ve got whozits and whatzits galore!” We were overwhelmed by the motley mélange of items and didn’t know where to start looking. Below are just some of the items that you can find at Donki.
You can find all sorts of snacks at Don Quijote — chips, sweets, biscuits, and more. This is where we bought our Green Tea Kit Kats because they were selling it for a cheap price.
I know I said Don Quijote carries sex toys, but they have wholesome ones as well. Don’t worry, these toys are very child-friendly.
Here’s a short video that shows the Maiko Dolls “dancing.” I got myself a pink one and it’s now sitting in our living room, together with Mike’s solar-powered Ninja figurine.
Perfect for both a sunny day or a rainy day, these umbrellas from Donki are just charmingly adorable!
They sell “normal” clothes and also not-so-normal ones, like these shorts:
Japan would probably be the best place to be on Halloween. For those who love playing dress-up, even if it’s not Halloween, Don Quijote is a treasure trove of zany costumes and kooky accessories.
T-backs, panties, boxers — whatever kind of lingerie you love, Donki’s got you (and your butt) covered. They even have what they call…
Tell me you’re not cracking up right now! You know that famous saying… “Once you go black, you’ll never go back!” (Or “Once you go black, you’re gonna need a wheelchair!”) I don’t think the Japanese are being racist about this. In fact, I think they created the Black Man underwear as a form of admiration for and tribute to the strapping sperminators of our black friends. The Black Man underwear comes in different colors, designs, and cuts, including the Super Bikini (above) for those who are feeling extra sexy. There are also other styles to choose from:
Do you like your home smelling like lavender, the sea breeze, or mandarin orange? Or do you want it to smell like marijuana, for a change? Then grab one of these hemp air fresheners. They come in different scents, too, like Love, Strawberry, Samourai, Anna Sui, Eternity, and Baby Doll!
Sex Toys, etc.
Before we proceed, let me ask you: are you 18 years old or older? No? You see that red button with an X mark on the upper right corner of the screen? Click that right now and get the hell out of here!
As we were going around Donki, we thought that this place has everything you are looking for. But when we entered the secret room behind this red tarp, I changed my mind: this place has everything you’re NOT looking for! Seriously, we’re no innocent prudes, but half of the things we saw in the Adults section of Don Quijote were things we have never even seen before! We did not even know that these things exist! There was a lot of “Ooh… what is this?!” or “Ooh… what does this thing do?!” We were like a bunch of curious kids in a toy store… except, of course, it was a *sex toy* store.
I present to you… the dildos at Don Quijote! We were so fascinated with them that we pushed the buttons to see how they work. Watch this video and watch these dildos do their tricks!
Wow! I know that the Japanese think of the craziest things but I had no idea that their sex and porn industry is so… creative!
You see, even if you’re not really buying anything in Don Quijote, you can spend hours just browsing through all the interesting finds in this store! Also, almost everything here is cheap! Whether you’re looking for practical items or out-of-this-world baubles, or you just want a good laugh, a visit to Don Quijote will surely amuse you! It’s my favorite store in Tokyo (NOT because of the sex toys!) — I mean, why wouldn’t it be? It’s random, it’s weird, and it’s funny!
