Wakasagi Fishing (Ice fishing for smelt fish)
The ice fishing ban is lifted from November, so from 1 November to late December fishing can be done in a houseboat or dome ship. From the middle of January to the end of March, when the thick ice freezes on the surface of the lake, you can enjoy fishing via a hole on the lake. Rental of the full package includes a fishing pole so you don’t have to do anything to prepare!
There are also fishing shops which will cook your fish or you can book a private room to eat in so please find a fishing shop that suits you.
