Personally (having lived in rural Japan myself) i think it's pretty cool they're doing a year-long promotion with a small southern prefecture

This is one of the $60 plates
This one is one of the $10,500 plates
I'm glad you shamed yourself so I didn't have to.
aww crap im late again http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthre...ight=porcelain
I have a friend who bought $5K worth of Bradford Exchange plates back in the 80s/90s. They're worth nothing today. Don't make the same mistake that he did.
Considering the markup on those plates, the food would probably be like a $200 Square-Enix veggie tempura or something. And you'd ruin your "valuable" collectible!
The least they could do is give you some food with those. Nice going to anyone that has enough money to waste on such a thing.
"hun, we are having guests over for diner tonight, can you get out the really nice SAGA commemorative plates?" :P
At least this plate is functional.... people pay $200 for statues that sit on shelves and have no function other than to sit on a shelf. At least you could eat off this plate if you wanted. I'm talking about $60 one not the $10,000 one. I don't see any issue with them selling plates to be honest.
The Roma Saga news everyone had been waiting for. Jesus, SE, can you be more of a joke?
All this detailed, ornate paint around the edges...and pixel art in the middle.
