This winter, why don’t you try your hand at a local Japanese pastime, smelt ice fishing, in frosty Hokkaido? Go to some of the best places to ice fish in the northernmost prefecture: Barato River, Lake Shinotsu, and Lake Kanayama. Then, make a hole in the lake’s thick covering, learn how to catch fish with your friendly instructor, and get to taste the fruit of your labor: fresh wakasagi (smelt) or tempura.
