Please read before making a reservation

We have posted frequently asked questions and explanations of things that are difficult to understand about cormorant fishing viewing.

[About prices and meals]
・Meals are not included in the price for both shared and chartered boats. If you wish to bring your own, please prepare your own. (In 2024, you can bring in food and drinks on all ships.)
・Before disembarking, please be sure to clean up your drinks, meals, etc. Please separate your garbage. (Please separate bottles, cans, and plastic bottles into separate bags.) Garbage bags will be provided by the crew.
・Cancellation fees may apply, so please check here for details.
[About shared boats]
・There are three departure times: 18:15, 18:45, and 19:15, but on all courses you will see cormorant fishing starting at 19:45. Therefore, the earlier the departure time, the longer you will have to wait on the ship. Enjoy the food you brought in while you wait. Disembarkation time for all courses is around 20:30-21:00.
・Children under 3 years old do not need to pay a boarding fee, but must be accompanied by a person over 18 years old when boarding the ship. In addition, the number of people will be counted, so please be sure to declare the number of people when making a reservation.
[About chartered ships]
・Children under the age of 3 are welcome to board the ship, but they will be counted in the number of people, so please be careful when making a reservation to avoid exceeding the capacity.
[Regarding departure and restroom]
・When it is time to depart, the boat will head upstream where cormorant fishing will take place, and then wait moored on the shore until cormorant fishing begins. You can disembark on shore until cormorant fishing begins. There will be no sightseeing.
・Some ships have restrooms, but there are toilet-only boats at the ship's moorings. Like the observation boat, it is moored on the shore, so please feel free to use it until the cormorant fishing begins. Please note that you will not be able to use the restrooms after cormorant fishing has started. Please use the restroom in the waiting area of the cormorant fishing boat before boarding.
