After a big night on the piss in Tokyo, myself and a couple of mates decided to check out one of the worlds largest fish markets, hoping to find a cheap and fresh sushi breakfast. The only way to describe Tsukiji fish market would be "complete chaos" or "organised mayhem". The concrete floors of this seafood jungle are covered mostly with large tuna's of all species, little jap dudes yelling and waving their hands, small motorized carts and pretty much anything else that swims - prices were quite reasonable and the sashimi was the freshest I have ever eaten. I took a couple of pics for those of you that are interested - NB. the bream was estimated at around 60cm, and the floor full of tuna was worth almost a quarter of a million dollars - and check out the steaks we had for breakky.

Hi Raefpud,

I don't know for sure but it may be the "$" symbol in the name? Maybe they can only be letters and numbers or something. Also, is the picture very big? I think they have to be under 100 kb in size to work. If it's more than that, try resizing it. Usually, on my camera, the pictures are 1000 by ??? and it is over 100kb. I change the dimensions to 700 by 550 (pixels) and it works. I don't know if this helps but maybe.

Now about the raw fish...there was a post about a guy in Japan who had a tape-worm infestation in his head a while ago here that has put me off eating sashimi FOREVER. I don't know if you saw it or not but I'm telling you truthfully, I still can't get those images out of my mind. Every time I look at fish, they pop back up and I'm nearly off to "driving the porceline bus" (slang term used to describe gripping the rim of the toilet bowl like a steering wheel as you...er...get sick...in it). I know raw fish is very popular to eat and all but, well, there can be a parasitic down side. :o Not trying to ruin your fun or anything just a word of caution. Don't want to see that happening to you or anyone else is all.

E.C.--- 800 degree oven for ten hours. ;D ;D ;D That should do it.
