White board = 105 yen ($1.08 €0.80)

I bought two white boards and pens for them at a 100 yen shop. Each one cost 105 yen ($1.08 €0.80) and the total cost was 310 yen.

It is announced recently consumption tax will be raised from 5% to 8% in next April. So 105 yen goods will be 108 yen goods from April of 2014.
