Japan’s weird food: extremely expensive fruits.

Almost all fruit is a little more expensive here, with the exception of bananas, which are a steal at 6 for $1.00! Apples are $1.50 – $2.50 each and some strawberries can set you back close to $10.00. However, some fruits are out of control expensive, notably melons!

Cantaloupe $30.00














Watermelon $70.00













It is considered the height of politeness to bring fruit as a hostess gift. When I last invited Japanese people to my home they brought me a $25 grapefruit!
