Uniqlo and Lemaire's Second Collection has started. UNIQLO said this is the last collaboration with Lemaire.
We can buy HERMES designer's work by only 1990yen! I am always impressed to the UNIQLO's corporate efforts. But I wonder what is going on the background. How is environmental pollution, low wages, bad labor environments? 1990yen is cheaper than one night dinning out in Tokyo, can we value it deeply like real HERMES one?
On the other hand, personally I really think real Japanese food's price in the U.S. is too high. The average price of Ootoya NY is over 2000yen or so. In Japan Ootoya is a reasonable "Japanese dinner" serving "Teishoku", I think they don't have any menu costs over 1000yen in Japan. Yayoitei is a similar type of Japanese dinner and they will open the shop in CA this year, their "Pork ginger" is $15.5, but it is 680yen in Japan. Of course the price will depend on each location even in the U.S. Still I am feeling uneasy.
This is my recommendation in Ootoya. Chicken Nanban(fried chicken with boiled egg sauce) 870yen.
