My name is Derek Yu, I am a IT professional and a freelance Graphic Designer.

I was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and brought up in a Hong Kong Chinese family.
After graduating from University, I came to Japan to teach English through the JET program in 1998. After that I continued to stay in Japan, moving around different IT professions.

As a hobby,  I freelance work on Graphic design and I am a huge Anime fan.

Since living in Japan, I have been a huge fan of the 100 yen shops and cheap Made in Japan or Recommended in Japan products.
For as little as 100 yen (+ tax) or several 100 yens, there are many useful and interesting products that can be purchased.
This site is dedicated to introducing and documenting some of these interesting products.

I hope you enjoy the site.
