Cormorant fishing has long been carried out as a traditional method of catching fish, mainly sweet fish. The most famous fishing ground is Nagaragawa River in Gifu prefecture. There are many things to talk about the cormorant fishing. Focusing on wild cormorants, those living in Shinobazu Pond in Ueno Park are thriving, though this habitat is in the center of metropolis. It is only one example in the world that cormorants live wild in such a big city. Today(on June 10th), I spotted one(the picture above). He or she seems to be satisfied with the environment. I hope that you will spot them in Shinobazu pond. Let me take you there. Why don't you join me?

As I am a 60 year old man, born in Tokyo, graduated from a university in Tokyo and worked for a leading paper wholesale company at its headquarters for 35 years, I am an Edokko or a native Tokyoite. I am familiar with various interesting places in Tokyo and the Kanto area such as historic spots, scenic beauty, entertainment, restaurants and so on. Although I basically provide several regular walking tours for visitors from abroad, I am willing to arrange your tour plan in a customized way according to your interest. If I receive your inquiry, I am ready to hear your interest and what you want to experience, and discuss your plan with you in advance.
