Winter Fishing


Hey! HAPPY NEW YEARS!! I know it’s been a good while since I’ve posted. But, I promise I have a good excuse which will reflect on future posts. Last year had been a bit crazy and the months just rapidly rolled by!. This year, my resolution is to be more active!!.

Over the weekend, I traveled up to Omachi – Taira. There’s a camping ground called,

Kizakiko POW WOW where I and a couple of other people decided to do some winter fishing.

It was a little over an hour’s drive from Matsumoto city.

We arrived just in time to see the sunrise, and it was beautiful!.

There’s an entry fee plus, other fees for different services depended on what you want to do. In our case, we just wanted to fish.

We had to pay for the boat service, as well as booking a dome raft which sits in the middle of the lake.

This place is gorgeous, and I would love to revisit it during spring or summertime to see what else it’s got to offer.

The dome.

There are 3 rows for fishing, each row can fit about 8 people. There are stoves placed about in the dome to keep everyone warm, and you can use the stove to boil hot water as well. Basically, it’s pretty spacious.

What is your new year resolution?



I lived in the east coast part of America all my life and now living in Japan. There are many interesting things to do on a daily and I want to share what I can.
