‘Ukai’ is a unique Japanese fishing method, in which fish are caught by cormorants instead of by people. ‘Ayu’ (sweetfish) is one of the many species often caught by this method.
Of the 12 areas of Japan where ukai is practised, this is the only place in which members of the public are able to participate (reservations required).
The exclusive experience is available only at Isawa Onsen – home to more than 30 onsen (hot springs), and only a 30 minute drive from Mt. Fuji.
Why not put on your yukata and come and experience an ancient tradition, whilst enjoying a uniquely Japanese experience?
