Japan just seems to want to prove to the world that it is definitely not a victim of the recent economic crisis. If you thought that the Japanese people would stop at the Glittering gold 2009 calendar, you are definitely wrong. The Japanese people seem to be very confident about their buyer’s potential. And so to celebrate Christmas this year they have introduced an extremely luxurious 24k gold Christmas tree. The tree is decorated with more than 240 jewels including diamond baubles and strings of pearls, weighs more than 21 kilograms. The tree went on display this week at the Ginza Tanaka jewelry shop in Shinsaibashi, Osaka.
According to a store official, the tree will help the shoppers feel gorgeous and forget the economic climate outside. That sure is some wishful thinking! This sparkling tree is definitely one of a kind piece and is valued at 150 million yen ($1.6million). For all those looking to have a ‘flashy’ Christmas this year, this tree is perfect for you.
