I was a co-ordinator for the national fishing fleet based in Hachinohe, that was sent to the Falkland Islands. The Japanese fleet was highly regarded even among the international competition. The many inspections the ships underwent were very stringent. (lol)
When I was young, 27, I was awarded the National Fisheries Agency Commissioner’s Prize, and then at 55 I was also awarded the Ministry for Transport Prize. Now, I live off fishing, working on a sardine boat. When you come here, if the weather is good, come along and fish with me.
●Year-round fishing schedule
January – March: rest time
April – December: Gillnetting for flounder, greenling, halibut and so on, and also octopus catching
If you're interested in joining me for fishing:
We get up at dawn then set off for the sea! At 7:00 we go to the harbour, and at 8:00, we deliver the fish we’ve caught to the market. It is early in the morning, but it’s also very fun.
Why not try your hand at fishing with us at Samuraihama, in Kuji, Iwate? We are just 7 minutes by car from Samuarihama sea pool, which is one of the filming locations of Amachan, the popular TV series. By staying at an authentic fisherman’s house in Kuji, you can see things from a local person’s perspective. The local scenery and the landscapes look more real than in the series. Although the house is an authentic fisherman’s house, it has been modernized and looks just like any regular house, so I believe you will be comfortable here. You don’t need to be mentally prepared! (lol) Don’t worry!
Q. What if there was another earthquake or tsunami?
A. We are 150m above sea level, so there would not be any tsunami here even in a thousand years. The building is robust, and even in that once-in-a thousand-year earthquake, there was no great damage.
Q. Do you have heating and airconditioning?
A. Since this is a cold area we have a heating system. Even in the middle of winter we are warm. Summer here is cool, and the air-conditioning is not necessary.
