Look at the size of those crab legs and fish heads!

Excellent street shot with an interesting point of view, leading the eye across the produce to the man and the background in general. I just find the green jacket in the background a little dominating. This is only my view on it, of course, but if it were my photo, I'd use the Replace Color tool in photoshop to change that green to a more somber colour, or perhaps I'd try the photo in black and white. (I would also tone down the brightest whites a little.) Still a very good image as it is, though.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

Asaichi? Very rich display!!! I don't know WHERE to look first!Many things here are just good for "o-nabe"....I've just cooked one, but more veggies and less meat!
Very attractive shot!

@Japanalia: This was an all-day market Gabriela. Yes, lots of good nabe ingredients!

Twelvebit from Victoria, United States

That's a fish market. It reminds me of the physicist Richard P. Feynman who disliked sea food until he visiting Japan and got to sample truly fresh fish.

@Twelvebit: That's very interesting. I'm sure many would share his experience. I know full well the smell from a fish counter in an English supermarket, the cloudy, old look and strong fishy taste to lots of the fish we get, which tends to prejudice people against fish. The idea of eating that kind of fish raw turns my stomach. But here... it's another story. Even fresh fish in a place not famous for 'fresh fish' in Japan is far superior to what I normally see in the UK.

Laurie from Lincoln, United States

Amazing market pics, Daroru! I really like them. We don't have anything like this where I'm at. Thanks for sharing! =-)
