- Miyoshi Cormorant Fishing【June to August】
Miyoshi City's seasonal cormorant fishing will transport you into another world. Cormorant fishing is a form of fishing that uses the natural behavior of the cormorant - diving skillfully underwater to catch fish. There are records of this type of fishing in the ancient Japanese text Kojiki that dates back to the early 8th century.
You can observe the skill of the cormorant fishermen on cruises departing from the pier at Shinsui Park between June and August. Please contact for further details.
※When cormorant fishing is not available, you can enjoy the Jusaburo Tsujimura Doll Museum or the recreated ancient Japanese dwellings at the Miyoshi Fudoki-no-oka.
