Buying Flowers in Japan

10 Feb

Flowers – that of the gift giving variety – are inexpensive and available at most grocery stores in Japan. For the life of me, I cannot fathom why flowers are so overpriced in countried like Australia and New Zealand. ¥300 to ¥500 is very cheap for a bunch of flowers, when prices are much much higher (read $5o or higher) in places like Sydney or Melbourne. I wouldn’t know a carnation from a lily but that ain’t the point. The inexpensive price for a nice bunch of flowers is the point !
