Quick, snap up that steak before it returns to its regular price of $86 a pound! To be fair, this ribeye is from one of those cows that live the spa life and thus produce beef that’s more like bacon than what we think of as steak, and I took this picture at Meidi-ya, which is the grocery store equivalent of Saks.
At my local proletarian Tokyu, a chunk of meat like these retails for a mere $70 a pound.
Read a novel set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
