Have Money to Burn? Pay $130,000 for a Foot Massager

Foot MassagerFoot MassagerI love massages. Love, love, love them. If I hit lotto, I think I would have three personal masseuses come to my house everyday: one for me, one for my husband and one for my younger son (my older son does not like them - obviously we don't know where he gets this from).

But, let's face it, a decent massage costs at least $60 an hour. The problem is I love, love, love, love eating out more (that's four loves). So the massages get put on the back burner.

Ginza Tanaka Jewelers in Japan has come out with a solid gold foot massager for $120K. For those cost conscious people, they also have a solid silver one for a mere $5,000.

Finally, a cost effective way to get a massage. I could get a gold foot massager for $120K. Think of the money I would save by buying one. For the cost of 2,000 massages, I could get one gold foot massager. I will break even in no time.

Seriously, I can see how someone could in their sick minds justify spending a ton of money for a diamond TV (Have Money to Burn? Pay $130,000 for a TV) or a diamond cell phone (Have Money to Burn? Pay $1.3 Million for a Cell Phone). They watch TV every day and use the cell phone every day. But who has so much money that they can justify buying a $120K foot massager. Let's see ... 2,000 massages or one foot massager.

Have money to burn for this gold foot massager? Pay me instead, I would do a much better job. I guarantee it. Thanks for the scoop Luxist.

Foot Massager

I can't tell from the photo how it works or where it is placed, but I'm guessing that it would be possible during foot insertion to get a toe jam.
