In Japan, it seems that prices have begun to go up.
Things with value have prices. This is just the general prices of things.
This is a jukugo word, which usually means on'yomi readings from the kanji. If you know the readings of your kanji you'll know how to read this as well. The ぶつ changes to ぶっ, though, so hopefully that doesn't change the price you're willing to pay for this vocab? Right? Please give me your money.
