Raft fishing

Departure from Chatan Town

Try your hand at raft-based fishing off Araha, set up by the Chatan Fisheries Cooperative. Conducted in a raft large enough to accommodate up to 40 people, participants rarely complain of seasickness. You can show up empty-handed and join in the fishing, as equipment rental (including rod, reel, lure and bait) is included in the price. A variety of fish ranging from horse mackerel to chromis notate (suzumedai) can be caught. Enjoy the sights on a peaceful sea, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
