I wonder what we will see as far as improvements in dropping prices here in Japan. I love deflation.

Nothing has changed here apart from everything imported is more expensive. Also...it’s called the CMTPP, not TPP.

Imported farm produce is cheaper than domestic. Yesterday bought very good Angus beef for probably a quarter of the Japanese price for equal black beef. moo moo!

@zichi. Kobe beef is very expensive. I can buy Japanese veggies from the Michi no eki, cheap, but from the supermarket expensive. Low quality imported Red wine is only cheap because tax is low, but a decent block of imported cheese is almost double in 2 years. Don’t get me started on avocados...

Goodlucktoyou

@zichi. Kobe beef is very expensive.

Actually it's not if you know where to shop but yes more expensive than the other domestic beef. Thought you said you are a vegan anyway?

I can buy Japanese veggies from the Michi no eki, cheap, but from the supermarket expensive.

One week's worth of vegetables for us is ¥5,000 and we eat many every day.

Low quality imported Red wine is only cheap because tax is low,

Nothing low quality about imported wine. Yesterday I bought three bottles of good French wine, two red and one white for ¥1,500 total including tax. I can get great wine from the import store for about ¥1,000/bottle. Try the wine clubs their prices are good too.

but a decent block of imported cheese is almost double in 2 years.

Cheese not really bad prices again go to the right shop. I like Camembert de Normandie, about ¥500/box.

Don’t get me started on avocados...

local price here ¥50-¥100 each?

Yes Japan will host the meeting, as Japan needs to keep them in line. What is Japan afraid of with a one on one trade agreement with the U.S.?

Many people buy beef comparing which one is more. delicious.

Expect Trump will try to sell left side handled Toyota to Japan claiming Tlyoota in USA is American company.
