Melons

Tokyo’s always been an expensive place to live, but these days there’s not a lot of difference to any other big city… with one major exception.


These melons are intended as expensive gifts and come in their own presentation boxes, but this one is the most expensive I’ve seen so far at a whopping 21,000 yen.
At current exchange rates that’s about A$265, £155 or US$235. Now I like a melon once in a while, but bloody hell…

To persuade you to part with your hard-earned, they’ve got this picture of the prize-winning farmer and his wife, who are apparently well known for high quality melons.
