My son went to the local fish processing factory for his junior high school work experience program. He wanted to work as a shop assistant, and he chose the place because the name was Nishiya Shoten. ‘Shoten’ is a retail store in Japanese. He thought he would sell something at the store, but it turned to be a fish factory. He had to process salmon and take out the roe. He worked so hard that he was given a large amount of salmon roe when he left the factory. It filled a middle-sized cooking pot. It was a tough day for him, but we were very lucky to eat lots of salmon and roe. (by a reader)
