Hunting, shooting and fishing trips Japan

Hunting and fishing trips in Japan: known for japanese sika deer stalking, black bass and abundant salmon fishing

These past years, there have been good news for hunters in Japan. Both the japanese sika deer and asian wild boar no longer have natural predators, meaning their numbers are off the charts. If you enjoy the skill and careful attention demanded by stalking, the japanese sika deer comes in absurdly huge sizes, surprising even the most veteran of hunters. Shotgun is more popular as the permit for rifle use is trickier to obtain.

This makes for regular shoots like the sika deer to take on a new flair and become more challenging. There are of course green and copper pheasants for the avid shotgun hunter. The island of Hokkaido is abundant with wildlife and the main focus for hunting and fishing, the thrill and fight of salmon fishing is keen among anglers making the Churui River very sought after as It is one of Japan’s most popular sources for salmon.

The deep sea fishing in Japan is also of great quality with exciting swordfish and fantastic blue marlin trolling weighing over 200 kg. Other great sea species include the amberjack and giant grouper found in Ogasawara and Okinawa Islands. Equally as enticing is the black bass fishing in Lake Kawaguchi, known worldwide as a premier destination for black bass.
