Shizuoka Marine Sports - Fishing, Surfing, Windsurfing, Boating, Scuba Diving

Shizuoka Marine Coast.

With almost 500 kilometers of coastline, rivers that have their origin in the Japan Alps and lakes that flow into the Pacific Ocean, Shizuoka is a great place for marine sports. Whether you enjoy body or board surfing, sailing or fishing, you will find it here in our many easily accessible spots for marine sports enthusiasts.

FISHING

You can enjoy fishing in almost all the rivers in Shizuoka prefecture. Ayu (sweetfish) and Nijimasu (rainbow trout) are here in abundance in clear streams. Kanogawa River (Izu), Matsukawa River (Izu and Ito), Shirata River/ Shiratagawa (Higashi Izu-cho) and branches of the Oi River (Oi-gawa) and Tenryu River (Tenryu-gawa), all offer excellent fishing. The clean waters of Shimizu Port, Yaizu Port and rivers are a treasure box for the fishing industry of the prefecture. The industry of marine product processing is also well developed. Abundent fishes you will find - Small shrimp, dried bonito flakes, sun dried horse mackerel, alfonsin, boiled fish sausage, young sardines, dried young sardines, yellow fin tuna, and bonito.

Rivers such as Fujikawa, Abekawa, Oikawa, and Tenryugawa flow throughout the prefecture, not to mention Lake Hamana in the west. Kano River of Izu Nagaoka Town (Naka Izu/Central Izu) enables fishing in mountain streams and Mt. Katsuragi provides views of Mt. Fuji and Suruga Bay. Such unvarnished nature ultimately relaxes visitors.

Hot Springs City - Ito City (Ito-shi) is the place for fishing! There are 200 fishing locations along the coast of Ito-shi. You can enjoy fishing on the shore at Jo-ga-saki Coast and fishing on the ship at Ito bay. Sweetfish known to live only in clean water can be found in Shirata River where fishing can be enjoyed. Fishing for conger at Matsukawa River and fishing for crucian and black bass at Lake Ippeki-ko are also popular.

Benten-jima (Maisaka-Cho) is one of seven islands south of Lake Hamana. These islands are a hot spring resort in itself. You can enjoy clam digging, fishing and swimming in the beaches. It is especially popular with families who come to gather shellfish at low tide from April, when the fishing season opens.

Lake Ikawa (Ikawa-ko) of Ikawa Dam on the Oi River is stocked with cherry salmon, carp and trout, and is a popular fishing spot.

You can fish from rocks along the coast on the Izu Peninsula at Ito and Toi, where there is a Fishing Park, and Izu Nagaoka and Jogasaki.

On the southern coast of Lake Hamana, there is Arai-cho and Maisaka. At the harbor at Omaezaki you can fish from the pier.

For those who enjoy getting their catch from the Ocean, you can rent a boat at Ito (four people for ¥20,000) and Inatori.

Fishing by casting a wide net is done on the Shiomizaka coast and Arai from May to October.

SURFING AND WINDSURFING

Hainan Beach (Haibara-Cho & Sagara-Cho) - The Shizunami Beach and Sagara Sun Beach are very popular bathing point in Makinohara City (Makinohara-shi) because they are shallow sandy beaches with calm waves. At Shizunami in Haibara-cho, you can enjoy these sports all year round. Various competitions are held here and you can also receive instructions. Throughout the town there are many shops where you buy or rent all the gear you need.

Shimoda - This coastal town is considered the mecca for young surfers who gather here throughout the year with their colorful surfboards. Surrounded by beautiful forest, mountains and white sands, Shimoda has some of the leading surf spots in Japan. The ocean water in Shimoda has been verified A-AA by the prefectural water examination committee. Because Shimoda is located at the southern tip of the Izu peninsula, it catches west, south and east swells making it possible to surf all year round. Shimoda is one of the best surf spots in Japan leading to its great popularity.

Omaezaki - This is the best spot for advanced surfers because of the strong wind. If you're a beginner, April to July is the best season when the wind is not as strong. This is the site of the World Bodyboard Championships.
