You don't understand Japanese culture (I don't understand everything about it either). The shape, color, size, etc. of things are very important. The overall aesthetic and how pleasing it is to look at, smell, taste, etc. is all very important. That doesn't just apply to food, it applies to pretty much everything.

This is true But there's another thing operating in Japanese culture as well. Gifts are given as signs of respect, and perfect pieces of fruit are sold for that purpose. I've stores have boxed perfect melons and other fruits prices between $50 and $100 for the sole purpose of gifting.

Yeah the gift thing is something I never fully understood or cared about in the 12 years I lived there.
Like at Christmas time you could buy Asahi Beer gift packs which were like $30, but all it was was 8 cans of normal Asahi laid out in a pretty box.
Or my favorite. Oil.

Stop googling prices. Christ. Get them from a traveler. Also, are you talking about pure fucking LSD? You can't measure LSD that way. It's measured in millionths of a liter. Been a while since I've seen anyone but you should be able to get several tabs for 30 USD.

Fentanyl isn't more dangerous than heroin. It's just a gateway drug because it's prescribed as a slow release painkiller, but the slow release can be easily bypassed by chewing it up.

Japan is rotten. They lack so many natural resources, that anything fresh and delicious is automatically rare, expensive, and a delicacy. That's why you get shit like

You people realize that most of Japan's fancy fruit was purchased from American growers, right?

That's generally why we always get south american produce and shit, our stuff is considered too good for our markets, and places like Japan pay a premium for it.

Oh you sweet summer child. Japan has themed pop up restaurants where you pay like $8-10 for overdecorated artificial fruit desserts

Not if you want modern technology. Our return is that we get the cheap production made possible by nations that don't care about the welfare of workers, and we let our own manufacturing industry fall apart in consequence.

You can get a pack of strawberries in Shizuoka for ¥200 to 300. If you're in a place like OPs pic, you pay a flat fee for as many strawberries as you can eat.
Kuno strawberries are the best, by the way.

It's a hell of a lot STRONGER than heroin, which massively increases risk over overdose with the homemade shit you buy on the street.
Pharmaceutical grade fent managed by a qualified doctor or RN is every bit as safe as pharmaceutical Heroin, though, yes, but that's not what your average junkie is shooting up.

Propofol can kill you but it's not a very effective way to go about it. You would generally die from severely lowered blood pressure, which can take a very long time in an otherwise healthy individual.
Sedation on Propofol and then administration of a midazolam/fentanyl mix would be pretty easy and completely painless, though.
