Man Eating Bugs: The Art and Science of Eating Insects book image

In a basement sushi bar in Tokyo, Japan, Mariko Urabe puts an inago, a grasshopper, between her teeth. She had never eaten one before this photograph and wasn't particularly interested in eating this one. As is true in many countries, food preferences are culturally based and don't necessarily extend to the entire country. (Man Eating Bugs page 37)
