The woman has a nice Christmas spirit smile.

Because the economy in Japan is just so bad.

A little too flashy for me, I will stick to the traditional X-MAS tree.

Looks more a Disney cake then a X'mas tree!

That doesn't look like a Christmas tree... it looks like a tier cake.

Ginza Tanaka have all sorts of guiant stuff made of gold. Seems like an invitation to some foreign criminal too good to miss.

actually a good investment if you got the cash, would be easier in a brick form though

Oh, yes! It looks so much like a tree, doesn't it? NOT! And, what is the connection with Disney?

You expecting it to go lower?

At the current yen rate it's priced at a little over $4.2 million (US). If the yen rate goes to $1.00 to 100Yen the price drops dramatically to $3.5 Million.

And, what is the connection with Disney?

It's made in Japan.

And, what is the connection with Disney? - It's made in Japan.

So? Disney wasn't!

I think you'd be hard pressed to find another country where Disney is so wildly popular. Everything is Disney here, or Hello Kitty. Doesn't seem that weird to me for there to be a gold Disney Christmas tree.

A Mickey Mouse three-tier merry-go-round made out of gold that claims to be a Christmas tree?

Something is askew in Ginza.

Something is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

The Disney characters sealed the deal for me. I've got to have this, how much is it I wonder?
