NEIGHBOR

  TOKYO


There is a research result that spending time in nature increases creativity and concentration.
Go into nature when you want to refresh.
Forest is good, but it's also good to relax all day while looking at the sea.
Actually there are many fishing spots in Tokyo.
I will introduce you to a fishing spot near WISE OWL HOSTELS TOKYO.
It is Wakasu Park in Koto-ku.
Wakasu Park has a fishing breakwater where you can see a Tokyo Gate Bridge. You can catch sea bass, scorpionfish and rockfish here.

Wakasu Outdoor Center (Wakasu Park Campground Shop) rents rods and sells bait, so you can go there with empty-handed.
I tried fishing for the first time in a while.

The result was too bad. The catch is zero. I got skunked.
However I got relaxed and had a great time over there. So refreshing!
I heard that you can barbecue the fish you caught at the campsite.
