Ikantravel Fishing Trips

JAPAN | Hokkaido


Hokkaido, located in northern Japan, is the second biggest of the islands which make up the country. This specific area, together with Mongolia or Russia, are the only places where you could find one of the rarest and most-valued species:  the Taimen!

The ITO, as the natives call the Japanese Taimen, is a fish species, which can only be found in the most eastern region of Russia and Hokkaido Island. A unique species, which you will only be able to catch in a couple of Japanese rivers and only during the months of June, September and October.

One of the peculiarities of this species is that some specimens reside permanently in the river, as happens in Mongolia with their Taimens. While others are anadromous: they live in the sea and only return to the river once they reach maturity before spawning time.

Besides the precious Taimen, there are other native salmon species that inhabit the Hokkaido’s waters, such as Yamame or Iwana, which you only will find in here, in Japan, as well as the rainbow and brown trout.

If you have never heard about the multiple possibilities Japan has to offer as a fishing destination, don’t hesitate and join one of our Ikantravel organized trips that we are offering. You will never be alone during this experience, you will be accompanied at all times by an English-speaking local guide, something which is difficult to find in this country.

On top of that, as usual with Ikantravel, you will have the chance to join one of our several Hosted Trips, which will be scheduled with the support of an additional Ikantravel member and our local guide.
