¥10,000 luxury tomato juice released in Japan

Produce in Japan (such as the rare white strawberry) can sometimes sell for extraordinary prices in Japan that make travelers do a double take. A soon released to be released luxury tomato juice will do the same, but the makers argue for good reason. Agricultural developer and consultant OSMIC is releasing an award winning high-end tomato juice that clocks in at 10,000 yen.

"OSMIC Tomato Juice first" has a sugar content of 15%, but uses no added sugar or water. The juice is made from OSMIC mini tomatoes, winners of the Vegetable Sommelier Summit Special Tomato Grand Prix. OSMIC cultivates the mini-tomatoes in a special soil that they say contributes to a higher sugar content and umami than usual, with a taste similar to mangoes.

Reservations are currently available for the high end tomato juice in Japan if you're curious enough (or really love tomato juice), with delivery expected in July.

Ketchup! Sometimes quantity over quality is better.

If there's a fool willing to pay 10,000 yen, then you sell it for 10,000 yen.

What the article really said "Howdedoo!!! Any of y'all knuckle heads is thirsty. I have this special juice which I got from the fountain of youth. It's only 10,000 yennies. You have to pay first though and see you in a few months".

One heck of a bloody mary!

Nobody else in the world would buy it...

If anyone is dumb enough to pay Y10,000 for tomato juice they are as stupid as the price.  Still, I guess you could drop a few splashes on the Y200,000 melons that become available once or twice a year.

The wrapping costs half of it and just make huge garbish wastes.

I clicked on the link to see how much juice you get for your 10,000 yen. 720ml.

Heck, I can get 750ml of Jim Beam for 1,200.

I wonder if it ages well, like a fine wine or if there is an expiry date.
