Photographer's Note

Here's a tasty treat for you! Japan is famous for it's seafood, and all the different things they eat. People in the western world would probably be quite turned off by the available foods in Japan, and many other Asian countries.

This particular delicacy was sold outside the famous Kazura Bashi (vine bridge). I have posted a picture in the workshop where we bought it from. Sure in the picture it might look a bit scary with it's teeth and yellow eye (which my friend accidentally punctured with his fingers). You basically just eat this right from the skewer. Just biting into it's chest area. Skin, bones everything (the bones are too small to worry about). If you're turned off by this, that's a shame as this was exceptionally delicious. Being open-minded in trying foods will get your taste buds to experience the best sensations. Luckily for me, I'm not picky and grew up eating food like this (my mother is Japanese).

If you're ever in this area, stop by and get one. You won't regret it.
