Oze Ukai小瀬鵜飼

Other Sightseeing Spot

Located approximately a five-minute drive from the Seki-Hiromi Interchange, cormorant fishing is a tradition that has continued in the Nagara River for over 1,000 years. It is characterized by the fact that you can see up close while riding yakatabune sightseeing boats that go parallel to them while they conduct the traditional fishing method of using cormorants. Fire is lit at night in the darkness, and hearing the call of the cormorant fishermen and cry of the cormorants in the quiet space is impressive. It is more like actual fishing than a show geared toward tourists. You can not only ride the sightseeing boats but also rent them out. They are available every year from May 11 to October 15. Although they do not close, please note that the hours for the boats differ depending on the season.

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan's greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture's traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
