Game fishing in Tokyo Bay

Land yourself a lunker on the capital shoreline

Game fishing in Tokyo Bay

Trout & King Fishing Tours have their office in downtown Ginza, but they specialise in worldwide fishing trips for the discerning Japan-based angler. When they're not chasing Wahoo around Christmas Island, however, they'll put a boat out on Tokyo Bay especially for Tokyo dwellers and visitors, most of whom seem to return with photos of sizeable sea creatures held high like glistening trophies. English is one of this company's specialities, as is the landing of Japanese sea bass (not a million miles away from a barramundi, or so we're told).

Charter boats are available from ¥36,500 (that's per boat, not per person, for four hours), with tackle and other fishing necessities packaged up for a meagre ¥2,500. Best of all, they're open 24 hours a day, meaning that you can hit the water whenever you like – before a sightseeing tour, after an eikaiwa class, in the midst of a stag get the idea.

Japanese sea bass fishing in Tokyo Bay can be booked via the Trout & King Fishing Tours website. English speakers are available
