Ice Fishing (わかさぎ釣り)| Lake Akan (阿寒湖)

Hokkaido is very "hot" during the winter time! When you come to Akan National Park (阿寒国立公園), please try ice fishing on Lake Akan (阿寒湖)↓
The ice is so thick that we can drive a car on it!!!

As it is so clear to see Mt. Oakandake (雄阿寒岳) from the lake, I believe today is the perfect day to fish smelts!

Let's go to the fishing site!

You don't have to prepare for fishing at all. At the reception, you can borrow a fishing gears such as a rod and bait with a service ticket, with which a local chef will cook your smelts as tempura on the spot! Wow! Wow! Wow! We have to catch a lot of smelts! Hahaha!

A lot of people are enjoying fishing early in the morning! If you want to catch a lot of smelts, I recommend to come here early in the morning and before the sunset.

We chose this tent↓

You don't have to make holes on the ice! They are already made like this↓ How convenient it is! In addition to that, it is equipped with a heater!! How wonderful the service is!

Around 10 minutes after we started fishing,

I love ice fishing!!!

 And I also love smelt tempura very much!! Yummy x 2!!
