Very funny, unusual experience. This restaurant is very well known for their "catch your own fish" experience. Order a fish from the menu and pay an extra 100 yen to get the fishing rod. Then go to their "aquarium" and start fishing. It's not easy...More

The novelty of catching your own fish definitely appealed to us, even better that your meal was cheaper if you caught the fish instead of ordering straight from the menu. Only downside was that there were not many fish to choose from and the ones...More

The kids had fun fishing for their dinner - you choose preparation style (raw, grilled, fried, etc). Can also scoop prawns. It can take awhile to catch your fish (can pay more to not have to catch your fish & just order off menu). Very...More

It was the first time to visit this restaurant for me, so before we went here, this shop sounded so good because of fishing. But it was a little bit noisy in this restaurant, so we had to speak louder than usual and we ordered...More

We went to the Osaka branch last year. I think the Osaka branch is bigger and better. However, it was still a fun experience. We went with friends who have never been and they had a blast catching their dinner. Since we had a large...More

This is a quirky little restaurant and fishing for your food is great fun. We caught a sea bream and had it cooked half sashimi and half tempura, the presentation was beautiful and the food was tasty . A downside is that the staff we...More

『 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!
