I visited some friends last night and to my surprise they had prepared some "nagarami" for dinner. Apparently here in Chiba they ate lots of that 30 years ago, but nowadays it's hard to find them. This is actually only the 5th time I enjoy them in the twenty years I've been in Japan. There was one that had what I thought a dead shrimp inside the shell--that I saw for the first time!
The sashimi was great as well!
