Sapporo ♥ Fish Market

August 24, 2010 in ❤︎I LOVE JAPAN❤︎ / Hokkaido / Japan

So the homestay group went to Otaru for snow crab but we paid soooo much for it and it wasn’t as nice as we imagined FOL.


When i returned to Sapporo, host parent brought me to a fish market that only local people go to.


Was near new year so they sell all kinds of cute okashi!


Mentaiko T________T



Otaru Cheat One™. If you ever go to Otaru just walk walk see see can liao cuz it’s very touristy.



So Tamiko Mama said i’ve tried Tarabagani (snow crab) so she’s buying Kegani (hairy crab) for dinner that night <333



I want to see some live one! And watch people eat it ala Old Boy.




Ohai Maguro.


Big big pieces of maguro sashimi for tasting.

I think one piece of maguro here = 10 pieces of sushi in Sakae or Sushi King.


How exactly do they slice a tuna that big ah?


More mentaiko wtf T______T





Haha that’s Mugi-Chan waiting for her dindin too.

We have one big hairy crab, some maguro sashimi, white rice and errrrr a MASSIVE BLOCK OF MENTAIKO ON THE LEFT BOTTOM CORNER i am just kidding it is a red towel wtf.



I dunno why but the crab looks like chicken here.

Really. You don’t think?

I don’t know. When i am eating an animal i prefer not to think about how it looks like the original animal. Or any other animal (oooh this is not frog. not frog. it tastes like chicken. so it should look like chicken. Drumstick. hmm).




So yea Otousan cut crab for me <3333333


Very sharp leh! No pain no nom. T_T

  23. Lenna says:

    You’re brave, eating crab like that! I eat meat and fish, but once when I was offered a crab leg, cooked and everything, I couldn’t eat it because it looked too much like crab. It creeped me too much…and its a shame because I know crab is yummy.

  24. mishi says:

  25. melmonica says:

  27. kcin says:

    i prefer to eat the maguro sashimi than the crab… looks nice

  28. Lyn says:

    I don’t wanna think of how the animal looked either. That’s why I nom pork and chicken without even wanting to know what part is it. Also why I don’t eat duck cause I keep picturing them walking cutely going quack quack.

      sorry but being a reader, I love reading her talking about Japan. I think the positive comments above you already proved that most of her readers love her talking about Japan. You have to be the 0.01% of her reader who doesn’t enjoy her posts on Japan. Therefore, I think it’s best for you to leave this blog. Thanks.
