Happy Hour Made Better-Beer Hour!

Japan loves gadgets- Japan loves beer–  here the two loves are intermixed with the Beer Hour!

Beer Hour is the perfect can dispenser- we all know the best beer is out of a tap, so carry your own tap with you!

Will fit most beer cans, so no worries if you are located outside Japan- let’s share good beer with everyone! (although we have to wait til May for its’ release!)


More Ridiculously Expensive Fruits From Japan!

Fruit can be VERY expensive in Japan, we have shown you 1K grapes, $200 watermelons (but they ARE square) and melons for $5500.
With these numbers, this lone strawberry may seem cheap.

Beautiful Princess strawberries are a jumbo variety and considered a special treat !
The above one is currently on sale for the low price of 10740 yen (including shipping), the strawberry is 3 times the size of a normal strawberry,  and 80 grams of sugar sweetness- only 50 boxed sets will be sold.
Will it be a popular Valentine’s Day gift in Japan?  I would spend my $135 elsewhere…
