Muji in the UK is my go-to-place for simple clothing, great stationary and really functional homewares for small flats like mine in London. So when I walked into Muji in Tokyo, I was delighted to find so much FOOD!
Rows and rows of their food ranged from ‘must-haves’ to ‘what-on-earth-is-that’?
All wrapped in Muji’s signature minimalist packaging.
Spaghetti Carbonara sauce? Butter Chicken Sauce?
I love the simplicity of these drinks bottles… almost medicinal..
So many snacks – mangos, crisps, turnips, dates, seaweed, rice crackers, nuts… how could the Japanese ever get hungry?
Ready-mixes for everything from cheesecakes to mango jellies to tiramisu….As a baker, I don’t think even I would be ashamed to have a couple of these pretty packs in my cupboard! Betty Crocker could learn a thing or two here…
Weighed down by shopping, I needed a simple shopper to carry my purchases.
Muji, of course had the perfect solution – for just 200 yen (£1.30!), you get a completely plain A3 canvas bag that you can stamp on whatever you like. Bargain, stylish and personalised so that it is the only one in the world – perfect!
