Fast food restaurant chain burger King is marking its fifth anniversary since establishing in the Japanese market with a limited-time offer of a five-patty Whopper.
And to make excess more accessible, the chain has cut the price from ¥1100 (roughly $14) to just ¥550 ($7).
This is neither the first nor the worst over-the-top burger Burger King has offered in Japan.
Two years ago it celebrated the arrival of the Windows 7 computer operating system with a behemoth seven-layer Whopper (pictured).
Last week the chain announced an agreement to establish 1000 restaurants in China over the next seven years, under a joint venture with private-equity firm Cartesian Capital Group LLC and Istanbul-based TAB Gida Industry and Trade Co.
TAB Gida operates 450 Burger King outlets in Turkey. Australia is the likely patty supplier.
