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!)


US$19.95

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…
