So today’s quest for seasonal strawberry picking in Shizuoka turned out to be a bust. We weren’t with a tour group so they turned us away like strays. Nevertheless, the Shizuoka area is very close to a port, so we went for lunch. I had a tuna steak smothered in mushrooms and garlic. And after I went to my first fish market. They seemed to have more dried fish as opposed to fresh fish, but it had the requisite fishy scent and whole fishes staring at you like “why?”.
We went with a mission, everyone had to spend ¥1000 (roughly $8) on fish for tonight’s dinner. I bought an octopus tentacle and some random (I don’t know it’s name) fish that everyone said was 安い (pronounced yasui, cheap). We shall see how this turns out.
