Melons Drop In Price But Still Shockingly Expensive!


The infamous auction for the first Yubari melons of the season took place this past Friday and sold for 500,000 yen (nearly $5400 USD)!!

The shock is not the high price tag but rather the huge drop from last year’s auction price of 2.5 million yen (nearly $27000 USD)!
Looks like Japan’s drop in prices involves every sector!

So why the high price?
Giving expensive fruit in Japan is a prized gift as seen by our prior blog posts: Grapes for A Grand and Square Watermelons!
