now Daimaru is a big Japanese
department store and it has heaps and heaps of clothing jewelry perfumes
hats all sorts got the big brands here but we’re not here to look for those we’re going to
pop down and have our first to look at the Daimaru
food hall which is just downstairs from all this we have a little glance get a
feel for it and we decide whether we can film in here or not

downstairs to the food hall and check it out this is the red bean one so it’s not red bean she’s going with a little overfull some there some I’ve got to get one of these this is

so look at the the oranges in here how beautifully packaged they are but I
believe they’re probably about twenty dollars for three oranges only fifteen
dollars over here so we’ve got some more oranges we’ve got
mangoes here that are around about fifty dollars each so $50 for one mango it has
to be good wouldn’t they little trays of strawberries for about
$10 then you’ve got up here you have the the
white strawberries so the white strawberries they are around about 5,000 yen that’s
probably close to sort of $60 over $60 for one tray of strawberries Australian

    The UK sitcom from the 70's "Are you being served" just came to mind

  2. Milan Vydareny says:

    The fish-shaped pockets were interesting. Some appeared to be some sort of dough, almost a filo dough, while others were made with a batter like crepes. I would hate to be the one stuck with cleaning that grill. My other take-away was the prices of fruits which were, to say the least, stunning. Makes me quite grateful that I can run down to my corner supermarket and buy top-quality produce of all kinds for very modest amounts.

    Hi Steve & Michelle! I'm early as always ๐Ÿ˜… The dried fish is called Iwashi or dried sardines and that nice lady was actually asking you ็พŽๅ‘ณใ—ใ„ใงใ™ใ‹ ?(oishii desuka) which means is it delicious? Hehe..great vlog as always. Great to see you guys enjoying Japan ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. BeastOfTraal says:

    The most I'll pay for a mango is $1.00. Form what I've heard the super expensive produce in Japan is very pretty but has no taste.

  5. Tammy Dee says:

    How fascinating Japan is isn't it? The food, the shops. I haven't really had time to watch a lot of videos. We've been traveling the past 9 days and we fly back home tomorrow night to Florida. But I saw you posted a video so of course I had to watch it. โœŒ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒท

  6. Dean Platt says:

    Safe Travels to you both & I look forward to another video from you soon ๐Ÿ˜Š

  7. Michael Ellard says:

    A man after my own heart. Every country I visit in Europe must check out the food halls.

  8. Kris B says:

    Hand up if you've had enough of 2 YouTube ads at the start of every video. ๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ–its getting ridiculous.

  9. FitAngie says:

    Hi Steve and Michelle, wow that was very interesting to watch her make those, and they sure look tasty. Is the dough like a filo dough, it looks like a layered pastry dough! Great experience once again. $50 for 1 mango? $20 for 3 oranges? OMG

  10. Boddah says:

    I love places like that, I almost never purchase anything tho. I just like window shopping.

  11. Maxi Bake says:

    'A row off Roe,' hubby wants to try that isle, he loves fish Roe, I'd have the seaweed. Lol. Your custard fish looked delicious Steve. Thanks for sharing this experience. Take care you 2. โค๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿถ

  13. Rickvanman - Variety Channel says:

    Man! Im sat here at midnight watching this and getting hungry seeing all those foods, Especially the custard filled fish pancake fritter thingies.
    Tried some cod roe recently, but letโ€™s just say, I wasnโ€™t a fan ๐Ÿคข but those cookies looked yummy.
    Another great video ๐Ÿ‘ thanks for sharing your Japanese adventures with us.
