YouTube - May 2024 Hard Off Visits! Searching for Portable MiniDisc Stuff!

Hello and sorry for the long delay!

Hopefully you were able to see some of my posts on Instagram about my travels in Japan and my visits to Hard Offs!

I finally got a chance to get some of my pictures and footage together from visiting Hard Offs in Japan.

If you haven't been to Hard Off before, definitely find some time! Hard Off is just one set of stores (also Book Off, Off House, etc.) that focus on reuse of goods so they don't end up in a landfill. Think about it like a Goodwill in the US, but WAY cleaner and nicer. Most of the goods for sale are actually in like-new or very good condition at decent or cheap prices. 

There is a lot of fun to be had in their pure "Junk" section as well! Here you can dig through shelves or bins full of old, incomplete items and see if you can find a diamond in the rough. I visited a few Hard Offs (and a Book Off) to see what I could find... 

Check out the video to learn more and I'm going to dump the rest of my photos here as well if anyone's interested.

My next quest will be to visit the most remote Hard Offs I can find during my next trip to Japan!
