Trails to Tsukiji

Flying Fish

Season 1, Episode 5 of 52

Gliding across the water on its wing-like fins, the flying fish is one unique creature. We visit Hachijojima, a lush volcanic island that's officially a part of Tokyo, to visit fishermen who work through until dawn to catch this mysterious fish. We also see how it's prepared and eaten in dishes as diverse as sushi, meatballs and even ramen. Finally, we get a glimpse of Hachijojima's rich natural beauty, including hot springs, waterfalls, lava plateaus and even whales.
