I used to forage with my Father and Mother for razor/clams cockles etc, weekends English coasts as a child

Fond memories, life was so simple,

I wish I could relive such wonderful memories.

I've done it in Japan, but there were always crowds of people during season. This is central Tokyo, so this beach must have slim pickings for no-one to be there.

Some of them, bakagai I think, have to be boiled twice and deshelled just to get rid of the sand. Its great getting them for free, but much more work than asari or hamaguri from the supermarket.

Our local beach is very popular for clam hunters. But some years they are declared toxic and uneditable.
