Summer Marine Leisure in Tokyo Bay
Family Fishing Experience and Beautiful Views

Come try sea fishing on a fishing boat that leaves from Samugawa Port, heading into Tokyo Bay! The target is Japanese whiting, which are easy for even beginners to catch. The view from the top of the boat is spectacular, with amazing views of the morning sun, Mt. Fuji, or the Aqua Line. This time, participants who wish to may take pictures in the control room! After fishing, the captain will teach participants how to prepare the caught fish.

If you’re lucky it could be a great catch! Don’t forget to bring a cooler!


Fishing from a boat in the oceans of Chiba City will become a great memory!
