Spent 8 days in Tokyo, and even ventured to buy 2 packs of Pu erh's to find out if the Japanese passion for tea quality and taste extends to their imports from China, which must be very stringent to import into their country. Due to language issues and probably for fear of paying an arm and a leg in a specialty teashop, I never venture into one, and just picked these at a supermarket and dept. store.
Not surprising, the teas were very clean, actually very inexpensive and drinkable.
The final day in Tokyo was this purchase, a Gyokusendo 3l. copper kettle.
Packed in a wooden box, wrapped in yellow cloth, all nice and fancy, typical of Japan's high standards!

It's nowhere near $100! maybe >75% off!
Oh I meant I'll bet $100 on the fact that you can probably find better in Beijing for very little money...
