Strange Cuisine

One of my goals in life has been to eat as many strange foods as possible. Of late I have been trying to document this. So here are a few of my recent excursions in the the world of Geteimono (innedible foods). Raw Oysters in Miyajima, a hot dog wrapped in egg from the Tanabatta festival, and liver sashimi at a yaki niku restaurant. Also featured here is Luke munching down on a ridiculously long sauasage.

Hiratsuka Tanabatta Matsuri

This was the single best day of shooting I have ever done. I spent the whole day at the Tanabatta Festival in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa Ken. It's a festival for lovers when the stars can join each other in the sky. To celebrate people wear kimono and hang streamers and floats from bamboo.
