Takashi Hosokawa, who manages one of the inns in the chain, told NHK News he is glad the operator secured the fruit and is eager to serve the grapes to hotel guests.

This was the most expensive sale of the grape since they were launched on the market in 2008, according to the Japan Times. The fruit is grown and sold exclusively in the Ishikawa Prefecture of Japan.

According to the Japan Times, the JA Zennoh Ishikawa farming cooperative expects that 26,000 bunches of the grapes will be for sale between now and September.
