Fruit shopping in Tokyo


It never ceases to amaze me the quality of the products in Tokyo. Sembikiya is the oldest fruit shop in Japan selling fruits of unbelievable quality you will get nowhere in the world. The fruits at the Sembikiya shops are so expensive that usually you buy them by units and often Japanese offer these muskmelons, mangoes, apples and oranges as gifts. Muskmelons cost from around 100 to 200 Euros a piece, mandarins – a little over than 2 euros each, one orange costs from 4 to 15 euros depending on the quality. No, you don’t make your fresh pressed orange juice with these!
