Where to buy and what to look for when you need a fruit knife

  • I want to eat some fruit I found at the store.
  • I have a cold and want to drink ginger honey.
  • I need some good lemon tea!

Do you ever have a sudden need for a fruit knife when you are traveling?


Where can you buy a fruit knife in Japan?

Let’s go to a 100 yen SHOP !

Daiso, Celia, etc.
You can almost certainly buy a fruit knife there. And for only 110 yen. (including 10% consumption tax)
If you don’t know the name of the store, just search for “100yen shop” on google map.

It is very unlikely that you will be able to buy one at a convenience store, pharmacy, or supermarket.

Precautions for carrying

In Japan, carrying a knife without a valid reason is prohibited.

If you are only going to use it at your hotel room or other place of stay and then return (home), it is safer to throw it away. If there is a possibility that you will use the knife again, such as when moving to another hotel, it is better to wrap the fruit knife in a towel or clothing and place it in a large piece of luggage, such as a suitcase.

If you only have a backpack, place it in the bottom of your luggage so that you cannot immediately remove it (i.e., you have no intention of using it).

In Japan, it is prohibited by law to carry a knife with a blade longer than 6 cm without a valid reason (Article 22 of the Firearms Law). Violations may result in imprisonment for up to two years or a fine of up to 300,000 yen (Article 31, Firearms Law).

Scissors, folding knives, etc. with blades of 8 cm or less in length are not subject to punishment, but may be considered a violation of the Misdemeanor Law.

When traveling or flying home, please note that fruit knives are not allowed in carry-on baggage.
