+1. Not sure I get it.
for ¥30K ($300 USD), yes, they're very hard to swallow.
The maker claim the shape to be the most optimal form based on their experience as a last maker, and should fit better than the non-lasted shoe trees available from most high end shoe brands (JL, EG, CG etc....)
I personally think hollowing the trees would have made them more appealing. If they got something similar to St.C or JLP Bespoke, and for a lower price, then maybe I will consider. And of course, if your shoe brand provides lasted shoe trees, why bother getting these.
I understand 30k yen can also get you an outstanding meal at Jiro Ono's 3 michelin star sushi restaurant.
19 sushis to be exact
I dont care for sushi but I learned this from an excellent documentary called 'Jiro dreams of sushi' which I thought was about a hell of a lot than just sushi. I could almost see any of the great japanese shoe artists here in Jiro's place, saying exactly what he was saying and it would still make sense.
Talking about yum sushis, I'm reminded of these all of a sudden.....

That is much cheaper than I expected. Omakase, ya?
Will find out more about them when I talk to their former boss.
Yes, omakase. ¥30K is among the costliest sushis in Japan
Back in the UK, the Kawaguchis did work for G&G too, and I remember Masa-san (iyorito) from G&G having a highest regard for their work. You may also want to ask Paul about other Japanese shoemakers who apprenticed under him, like Yukiko Ogawa (Benchmade) and Ryota Hayafuji.
How much would a plate of famous (or infamous) Fugu Sashimi (pufferfish) set you back?
One more question: Do restaurants expect payment before serving the dish? - Inquisitive minds want to know!
That's ~$300, not too expensive for special occasions. But i thought those sushi served on teenage girls chest and butt to keep the temperature and oil intact would be more expensive...
Will do. Didn't ask Dean regarding Kawaguchi as their interview on Last didn't mention they worked for G&G (or EG during the earlier days.
That plate looks like its for 3-4 people on a standard 27cm plate. Expect to pay around ¥2000 per person, so that plate should set you back ¥8000. Would cost more @ nicer restaurants with presumably higher grade pufferfishes.
Pufferfishes used to cost A LOT because of scarcity and also for the difficulty to prepare. But nowadays you can eat pufferfishes pretty much in any Japanese restaurant, as they are now 'farmed' and mass produced.
You pay after dinner here in Japan, unless you're at some fast food joint (ramen, soba etc....). Nicer restaurants have a 10% service fees included, no need to tip.
Haha, what you're talking about is a criminal activity (involving underage girl), and yes there have been public scandals involving such and government bureaucrats. I guess you can still find body-sushi service if you look for it? but such stores are probably considered a part of the sex industry and regulated as such. I honestly think 'body sushi' is more popular overseas than in Japan
Yeah, I saw it on their bio on MENS EX interview and on their website. Says they did jobs for GG, EG, and FS. The LAST interview didn't name the firms they did outwork jobs for.
I have seen better in Hong Kong.
