This is very interesting to see such a large fishery inside Tokyo Bay. Is the water not polluted?

Also very interesting to see the traps with the rakes attached to catch the clams.

These views are lovely. It is good to see that the 'old' ways of doing things are still used. That is so charming. I live near the ocean so these photos of Japan's ocean make Japan seem closer to me.
Thanks Nobu!
