Yamaga Sightseeing: Yana (Weir) Fishing

This is a recreation of the ancient yana fishing method, in which a weir is stretched across the Yura River to catch fish swimming along it, amid beautiful natural surroundings. It is only during this season that you can watch sweetfish and other fish being caught up close. *From September 1-30, Yana Festivals are held and you can try a hands-on yana fishing experience.
