Lake Hamana gastronomy tour
April 1 to October 31, 2020
Activity one: Eel catching Experience
Try catching eel, one of the specialties of Lake Hamana. This activity gives you the skills to catch then baste, grill and eat your eel after it has been cleaned and baked for you.
Activity two: Seine fishing and BBQ
Seine fishing is a traditional fishing method at Lake Hamana in which a large fishing net is brought out by boats and dragged back to the shore to catch shoals of fish in shallow water. Join in with the fishing and indulge in a barbecue afterwards of the day’s catch.
Activity three: Ebisuki Fishing Activity
Catch Japanese tiger prawn (kuruma ebi) and fish in Lake Hamana with a net. This nighttime activity takes advantage of the ebbing tide after high tide to maximize your catch. You can take whatever you catch home, free of charge, to eat later. You will be picked up from your hotel or other lodging and taken to Arai Fishing Port by boat.
