In 2015 these sort of melons were selling for Y 5000

Cool

Cheaper in the long run to buy a plastic one and reuse it every year.

So this is what Japanese technology is reduced to .

I often hear the phrase "Japanese pride" concerning their 'superior" culture and technology

Gambatte Nippon .. you bloody need it chums

An interesting gimmick but certainly not worth the money. Watermelon in Australia is 187 yen/kg

Assuming a 10kg melon thats 1,870 yen. For a 5 kg melon 935 yen.

Get a wood block and paint or wrap it with watermelon design instead.

Y10,000. That's a bit steep for an inedible melon.

Yes, it's inedible. It's just for show. (Showing you've got cash to burn on a useless prop.)

Overpriced junk anyways.
