Dr. Fish

21 May

In Japan, fish eat you!

These hungry little guys are called Garra Rufa and come from two pools of water in Turkey. They’re proving popular in Asia, and they were giving a 5 minute demonstration for 250 yen (~$2.50).

It was great! They nibbled and nommed on my dead skin, and when they were done my feet felt wonderful! I did have to shake a few of them off, just to make sure that I wasn’t taking home a new pet or two (my apartment contract doesn’t allow fish).

Supposedly, you can immerse your entire body for these fish….and I kinda wanna try it.

(by the way, that’s his foot….he was lovely enough to pose for camera).
