Fishy Feet

One of the fun activities we did last week while my father and younger brother were visiting was to go to the Nagoya Castle festival. There were foods from different regions to try, lots of dancing - M jumped into the group and quickly picked up the moves, and my favorite, fish pedicures!

I had been wanted to try this, so I was pretty excited about the opportunity to have little fish nibble on my feet. G and I both dunked our feet in (about $5 USD for just over 5 minutes) and although it was a really strange sensation at first we both quickly adjusted. The fish don't have teeth, so there is no worry of them chomping off any of your live skin, they just go for the dead flaky calloused skin. Mmmmm tasty. But boy did my feet feel great! I'm still trying to talk M into getting some as pets so I can indulge in daily maintenance for my feet!
