Angling for tropical fish in Japan's southernmost prefecture


The seas surrounding Okinawa—the tropical, southernmost prefecture of Japan—are not just for water sports. The crystal-clear waters make Okinawa an exciting fishing destination. Fishing here can take the form of relaxed shore fishing or angling for bigger game by boat. Potential catches include an array of colorful, tropical fish that thrive only in the warm waters south of the Japanese mainland.
