Restaurant Fishtank

Fish in a restaurant's fish tank, Shinjuku, Tokyo

It is well known that when it comes to dining, the Japanese like their food fresh. Sushi and sashimi are famous throughout the world as exquisite examples of raw cuisine. Even if being cooked, ideally the Japanese chef wants the fish alive till the last possible moment.

This restaurant on a backstreet of Shinjuku, Tokyo, goes as far as it can to assure potential customers of the freshness of its fish: a tank out the front where the very much alive fish can be viewed before going on it to feast on them.
