This is a unique restaurant because you get to catch your own fish. There is an option to just purchase the fish but since you have the opportunity, why not. When we arrived, the host gave us some bait and showed us where the poles...More

This is a cool place to have dinner, where you eat what you catch. Some are easier to catch than others and it gets busy at times. No catching during lunch which is a bummer but for dinner is fine. We caught the sea bream...More

They have live tanks all over. You get a discount for catching your meal Lots of seafood to choose from. Don't wear something you might get dirty. The staff aren't very focused at times.. make a reservation!

『 Let's enjoy fishing 』 Fished by yourself is an exceptional taste. Still eat fish fishermen landed on the ship! It is a restaurant you can experience such presence! If you catch the fish yourself, it's cheaper!? We can fish for our own fish and eat it fresh at a discount price. We hope you will use this system to enjoy fishing and eating fresh, flavorful fish!
