Eel flown from Taiwan

Many Japanese eat eel in summer, a traditional custom practiced to observe ''doyo-no-ushino-hi,'' the 18th day before the beginning of autumn as defined by Japan's old solar calendar. The photo shows two girls sorting out the eel flown to Narita airport from Taiwan on Friday July 24 ahead of the day, which falls on July 29 this year.
