We were determined to catch this this year. Tickets were sold out and we couldn't participate in the salmon catching....but we went anyway - next year we'll buy tickets. Here are directions etc if you happen to be googling this in 2012. We hope to be here to get one more shot at participating next year. LOL
This event is held each fall in Rokkasho. They go out in the a.m. and catch salmon and put them in several pools. All day long there are contests to catch salmon. There is food on a stick...and a produce market as well. This was a nice drive, fun to watch and we enjoyed walking on the beach afterwards.
