For those who are looking for daily use items for souvenirs from your trip to Japan. Are you interested in buying toothpastes?

There are some reasons why we recommend you toothpastes as souvenirs. Japanese people love brushing teeth. Not to mention after breakfast and dinner, quite a few people brush their teeth even after lunch at their work. Many of them carry a tooth brush set in their bag. A lot of Japanese are serious in taking care of their oral health as some of them are longing for the white teeth, conscious about bad breath, worried about dental caries, and so on. By the way, it is said that there are approx. 50,000 convenience stores in Japan, but the number of dental clinics are approx. 70,000 – more than that of convenience stores.

It may have just proved how much Japanese people care about their teeth. Drug stores have a variety of dental care goods. Try the series of the Shumitect(R) products if you are not sure about which one to buy. Shumitect(R) is a brand for toothpastes and toothbrushes sold by GlaxoSmithKline for those with hypersensitivity (an oral condition in which a person have toothache when drinking or eating something cold or a temporarily have toothache even they have no dental caries). It has achieved the No. 1 sales in the category of toothpaste brands for hypersensitivity (*1).
