Peek into the lives of local fishermen!
The people of Toshi Island have always earned their livelihood from the sea, and fishing remains the lifeblood of this small but bustling island just off the coast of the city of Toba. This half-day tour lets you get a feel for life on Toshi, where centuries-old traditions remain integral parts of daily life, and where local fishermen work to preserve the marine environment by promoting sustainable fishing practices. After a 20-minute boat ride from Toba to Toshi, our guide will lead you across the island, past rack upon rack used to dry fish and over a hill into a labyrinthine village.Here you can learn about the customs and traditions of the island. Weather permitting, you’ll get to attend the island’s vibrant seafood auction and watch buyers throng around the day’s catch. After trying to guess some of the fish prices, it’ll be time to wrap things up at a local diner with a feast of fish served stewed, grilled, deep-fried, as sashimi, and more. Traveling to Toshi makes for more than a memorable experience. As local fishermen feel encouraged knowing that guests are interested in their lifestyle and efforts to protect marine resources, every visit helps sustain the community.
