Shakunage Ko Matsuri 2014/しゃくなげ湖まつり2014年

Japanese Food
On July 27, Shakunage Ko Matsuri was held near Sagurigawa Dam, as is done around this time of year every year. One of the major events at the festival is fish catching. There are two sessions, one at 1:00 p.m. and the other at 3:00 p.m. My children and I participated in the 3:00 session. Unlike in the previous years, the two sessions were held on the main site, not in the pond near the playground.

There were much fewer rainbow trouts in the makeshift(?) pool. About 5 or 6 minutes after the start, the staff declared that the fish catching was over. My son caught only four, and my daughter one. In the previous years, one session lasted more than twenty minutes.

And, the rainbow trouts were much smaller than in previous years. Compare them with the ones we caught previously.

Three of us were all frustrated, and spent more time in a supermarket later…
