What no pumpkins?

It is not easy to find the big pumpkins used for carving here in Japan and when you do manage to stumble across one they are usually expensive. I did have a look around, admittedly I didn't put that much effort into hunting one down but then when I was in the supermarket the other day I thought, why use a pumpkin? So, I threw a daikon (giant white radish) into the basket.
Carving it was a bit tricky, I cut up the inside first then Ebi-kun scooped out the middle and I cut out the face, I don't have carving tools so I just used my little veg knife.
scary daikon!
