Foot gourmet

Ok, so this is a little strange and a little bit outside the scope of this blog but I have to tell you about it anyway. Yesterday Toshi and I went Oedo onsen to have our feet nibbled at by little toothless fish. These little guys are called 'doctor fish' and they have been imported from Turkey to eat the dead skin from people's feet (and presumably other parts of the body). For around ten bucks you can put your feet in a pond and experience the very bizarre sensation of having hundreds of little fish nibble at your feet. Once you get over the initial ickyness of it all, it's actually quite nice.
