The Grand Hyatt hotel in Tokyo doesn’t appear to think so – they have decided to welcome the country’s incoming Emperor with an enormous, gold-dusted burger that costs £700.
The Oak Door steakhouse located inside the hotel will mark the ascension of Crown Prince Naruhito with the ‘Golden Giant Burger’, which stands at 25cm wide and 15cm tall.
As well as the entirely necessary dusting of gold, the burger features a kilogram of prime Wagyu maize-fed beef, foie gras and shaved black truffles – as well as some more normal burger ingrediants including cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.

‘In celebration of the new Imperial era Reiwa and the long Golden Week, The Oak Door steakhouse will serve a special edition of their signature burger that come with two sizes,’ it says on the hotel website.
‘Let these indulgent burgers be the perfect choice for celebration!’

The Golden Giant Burger, which also marks the ushering in of Japan’s new Reiwa Era, will stay on the menu until the end of June.
