Once you arrive at the fishing point, you will set up a tent and drill a hole in the ice. You can even experience drilling a hole yourself, if you wish. The local Hokkaido guide and expert will carefully teach you the important points of fishing. Beginners are more than welcome to try!
You can fish outside the tent, if the weather is nice. You can also taste the smelt you catch as a freshly fried tempura!
