Night shrimp fishing (ebisuki)

Catch rare wild shrimp with a net!


You can experience night shrimp fishing (ebisuki) by scooping the shrimp in nets at Lake Hamana. Lake Hamana is a rare saltwater lake, formed where the sea and a natural lake meet. Therefore, abundant nutrients gather and many sea creatures make their home there. Ebisuki fishing takes place during the transition to low tide, when the water of Lake Hamana is flowing outwards to the sea. During this time the shrimp that have grown up in the lake ride the tide out to sea. The fishing method used to catch them has been handed down year by year among the people of Lake Hamana. This is a rare experience in which both children and adults can enjoy the nature of Lake Hamana.
