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).
