Quiz Time: Mitsukoshi Eats with Matsutake

This is expensive yet very cool Mitsukoshi -- the one where Ginza subway meets the Oedo (?) line in central Tokyo.
Call it prime real estate with the sales of high-priced items. To entice you, there are many great tastes for free as you internally balk at the outrageous prices.

I even saw plastic sushi stalls that looked really good to eat...but were plastic.
Guess how much the pack of mitsutake mushrooms on the right cost (they grown on pine trees) -- supposedly very delicious and sold in markets in department stores and on the street. ~One hundred sixty five dollars CDN. Go figure.
