[COMING SOON] Fisherman for the day: Net-fishing from the front-line!

Thrilling morning on a local fishing boat in seafood paradise, Kesennuma

NEW CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Due to the continued global spread of the COVID19 virus and the associated impact upon public health and safely in Japan, reservations for all tours and experience programs will be SUSPENDED until May 2020, or until the situation improves and relevant restrictions upon travel are lifted.

Highlights

The fishing grounds along the Sanriku coastline off Kesennuma City are considered to be among the three largest in the world! The prosperous port town boasts an expansive local fishing industry, covering everything from deep sea fishing to cultivated seafoods. This program gives visitors the rare chance to experience the life of a local fisherman for themselves. Starting from the early dawn, board a fishing boat and head out to sea, watching the fishermen at work from the front-line! You’ll be left speechless by the intense action unfolding before you (but not too close!!). Get a taste of a fisherman’s daily life – from the incredible physicality of their work to their expert ability to read the waves and behaviour of the fish. Watching the sunrise over the water from the deck will be a moment that will stay with you forever. After working up an appetite, drop in to a restaurant frequented by the local fishermen themselves. If you’re lucky, you might even meet one over breakfast!
