What is

New Year’s Day without a fire-exorcism at the local temple, followed by hot sake and stewed chitterlings, and the takoyaki octopus-tentacle; all before 9am?  From Tokyo, wishing you big catches, safe journeys at sea and all the best for 2013.

Not forgetting grilled ayu sweetfish on a stick…

  2. Hi Shar,
    Thanks and Happy New Year to you too.
    You are always welcome here if you want to go fishing together in Japan, just drop me a line!

  3. Oh, that salted ayu really takes me back. Nice! Catch something big and tasty this year!

  4. It was pretty…salty as I am sure you know!
    Unfortunately my squid fishing trip today was cancelled due to bad weather, so it looks like I will first out this year on Saturday, hirame fishing on Sagami Bay, to try and catch some of those beasts I lost in October.
