I have a major fetish for #veryrare Japanese fruits with expensive price tags. I hardly ever buy any of it, but there’s just something so memorizing about these perfectly shaped fruits. During my last Tokyo adventure, we stayed at the Mandarin Oriental in Nihonbashi which is where I found Sembikiya, Japan’s oldest gift shop specializing in bougie fruits! This OG fruit shop was established in 1834 and has been killing the luxury fruit game since.
I couldn’t justify blowing a ton of cash on fruits although I did contemplate pulling a robbery on a flawlessly round Muskmelon and a bunch of plump juicy Kyoho grapes. However, I did leave with something pretty effing amazing – ICE CREAM and SHERBET !!! I had a hard time deciding because there were so many dope flavors!
