Seine Fishing, Boat Cruise & BBQ Lunch on Lake Hamana

Open year-round.

  • Sports/Outdoor
  • Japanese Culture

In this experience, you will take part in a seine fishing activity on Shizuoka prefecture’s Lake Hamana. Technically a lagoon leading to the ocean rather than a true lake, Lake Hamana is famous for its biodiversity and is seen as a center of Japanese aquaculture, having over 500 species of fish.

To begin your activity you will have a brief orientation where the fishermen will explain the processes behind seine fishing, as well as the types of fish and sea creatures you will find on the experience. The form of seine fishing you will then take part is a traditional style called jibikiami, or beach seine. In beach seine, participants, in groups of 20 people or more, operate a large fishing net from the shore, using specific calls and shouts to synchronize their movements. It is an extremely affective way of gathering fish and gives you the opportunity to observe up close a number of different creatures native to the lake.

You will then hop on a private pleasure boat to cruise the gorgeous scenery of Lake Hamana further. While the fishing experience is a fun way to see the creatures of Lake Hamana’s depths, this is great way to explore the lagoon from above.

The final stop on your lake cruising adventure will be a BBQ spot on Lake Hamana’s beach. Here you will enjoy the fish you caught as a BBQ lunch and taste other recommended foods from the local area.
