Image of Asia: Digging for clams at the beach in Japan

In this photo by Koji Sasahara, beachgoers dig for clams on a beach during the Golden Week holidays in Yokohama, Japan. The week encompasses several national holidays and is one of the most popular times of the year for Japanese people to travel. From mid-March to June in Japan, people go to seaside parks and beaches to dig for clams such as Japanese littleneck. By the thousands, people start digging in the early morning and use rakes to find the clams.
