    Can you tell me what the sign tells? I can see that the price is 15750 ¥ but for what quantity? Could you please translate the whole sign?

    Hi,Henrik 🙂

    The Japanese matsudake mushroom of this year is a bad harvest. If the summer of the year is hot, upbringing of the matsudake mushroom is difficult.

    If you hope it, I investigate the rule of the price of the market.

    Thank you for answer, but I must have been unclear. What I was asking for was what the text of the sign says in the picture of Mr Ueda with Swedish matsutake in your text “The pine mushrooms which came over from Sweden”? You wrote it 2010-08-19.
    I can see that the sign says 15750¥, but what moore does it say?

    Is a person having pine mushroomz in a picture Ueda? It is written for the article of the newspaper that a supplier of Kyoto sells it.

    And those prices are written as a one-third in comparison with the Japanese product.

    The special thing seems not to be written for the signature in a picture.

    From Sweden
    Pine mushrooms
    About 15,750 yen per 200g”

    I cannot distinguish the letter of the footline.

      The person in the picture is Koji Ueda, he is a friend of mine and has a very nice shop on Nishiki market street in Kyoto. You should go there if you go to Kyoto! By the way I believe some of the matsutakes in the picture were picked by me 🙂

    YW.The suppliers of Kyoto have tradition and are excellent. It was treated favorably to a newspaper about the pine mushroom which you chose 🙂

    If there is the opportunity when I go to Kyoto, I want to watch the shop.
