The first time I went to a market in Japan, the many unusual sights amazed me. Although I had been to Asian markets in the U.S. before, and even spent three weeks in China learning about food and nutrition, many things in Japan still left me in awe. Thankfully we had a tour guide who was happy to explain some of the stranger items. This was my first encounter with a sea pineapple (which not a fruit at all), crabs with legs as long as my arms, peaches the size of my head, lots of sea veggies and more kinds of mushrooms than I would ever know what to do with. But, if I had to pick any one thing from Japan that has amazed and captivated me most, it would be the daikon.
