Nippori and Tsukudani

I'm going through some photos that I took last month, and post some gems before they are forgotten.

During the Yamathon, I passed this interesting area in Nippori that had all sorts of old shops full of character. One of the shops sold tsukudani.  I stopped to take photos, as one of our group had to buy some.

I've had this before in many Japanese meals and wasn't exactly sure what it was.  It's got strong flavor and after reading the description in Wikipedia, it may have a cousin in Philippine cuisine, bagoong.

There was this interesting senbei shop across the street.
