Unique night spearfishing Experience


  • Sports/Outdoor
  • Japanese Culture

At Lake Hamana in Hamamatsu city, there is a unique way of fishing that has been locally practiced for over 100 years. The fishing is done from May to September in the shallow area of the southern part of Lake Hamana. Ships depart at sunset, and use lights to illuminate sleeping fish and marine life below, which are caught and scooped into nets. Lake Hamana is a famous saltwater lake, and has quiet waves, so you can easily see the bottom of the lake and the many fish that live there. Also there are many shallow spots where fish can be harpooned, thus this style of spear fishing has proliferated in the area. You can bring your catches home, but also you can eat them at “Takiya-tei,” a raft located on the lake. The boatman on each “Takiya-tei” raft prepares the seafood as tempura, miso soup, etc. The seafood you eat on the lake is exceptional!
