special “float fishing” lesson
Sasebo Gyogu is a fishing tackle store located in Shiohama-cho (in Sasebo City); it sits in an area very close to the Yonka-cho Shopping Arcade and Sasebo Fifth Avenue. The store is well stocked with all kinds of fishing equipment and supplies, for both beginner and advanced fishers, and simply glancing at the gyotaku prints (ink prints made with caught fish) hung above the store’s cash register can be quite a thrill. If you purchase some beginners’ fishing rod and reel combos at Sasebo Gyogu, you can receive a special hands-on lesson on how to use basic fishing tools (for float fishing), on the bank of the Sasebo River very close to the store. To be eligible for this lesson, you need to purchase at least three combos. So why not visit the store with your family or friends and have a lesson together?
Through the lesson program we provide, we teach customers the basics of float fishing, which is highly popular in Japan. In Sasebo City are the Kujuku Islands, not far from the central area of the city by car. The area surrounding the Kujuku Islands is a beginner-friendly fishing spot—with calm seas and quiet and gentle waves. First, please learn how to use basic fishing tools through the float fishing lesson we offer. After this lesson, we would be delighted if you actually take up sea fishing as a favorite pastime in Sasebo.
