Tuck into firm tiger prawn tempura straight after catching them
Floating out across Lake Hamana at night on a boat, relying on underwater lights, you can experience the unique fishing method of this area in which fish and crabs are caught with spears. When you find a fish or crab, it feels like it is going to be a straightforward task to catch it, but when you go to stab it with your spear...it's gone or escaped into the subtle refractions of the water... Enjoy your skillfully captured spoils cooked aboard a raft on the lake either as tempura, boiled whole or put into miso soup. Don't worry about failing to catch enough: the meal is served regardless.
Let's get on board a small boat and pull out on to Lake Hamana
