Interesting food (2004-04-03)

There is a plethora of strange but interesting food in the stores here if you are willing to look.  I am not, and I still find plenty.

I went to Nikinokashi (kanji), a discount candy and snack shop, in Ueno (kanji) with my friend the other day and saw some unique snacks.  Chips made from puffer fish, tuna candies, and eel bones ( as if eels aren't bad enough, their bones?) fill the shelves.  There are even simmered grasshoppers sold in some department stores's food section. 

One day I may be game enough to try all the odd food I see.  Nah, may be not.
