Beachgoers dig for clams at Marine Park in Yokohama on Saturday. Hundreds of people come to this one-kilometer-long beach to catch little neck clams when the tide is out.

This is right next to Hakkejima Sea Paradise amusement park, Just take the Seaside line from Shin-Suguita. I've been there and watched people doing this, it seems very popular. Not sure I'd want to eat anything from Yokohama bay though, and it seems like a lot of effort for a bucket of tiny clams.

Could be a good pick-me-up. It always feels good to physically work for something and get results right after.

It's probably more for the "family fun" or cultural tradition aspect. The "take" is limited, but there's zero enforcement, and I've witnessed people taking way more than "allowed".

No wonder so many people eat at Macdonalds here if they don't have a problem eating these toxic morsels.
