Japan Eel Catching Experience

You can learn how to broil eel you've caught with your bare hands!

At Imagire Craft Workshop, Kaikokan, Arai, in Kosai city, which is close to Imagireguchi that connects Lake Hamana to the sea, you can try the locally famous "catching eel by hand experience" for a limited time. Starting by catching an eel with your bare hands, you will then cut, broil, and skewer it by yourself, and finally broil it again after coating it with sauce. The taste of an eel bowl made with what you've managed to catch yourself is sure to be exceptional!
