6. Take a walk across a sandbank to an uninhabited island of love!

Chiringashima is a beautiful uninhabited island, only 3km in circumference, in Kagoshima Bay. It is accessible only on foot via an 800-meter-long sandbank that appears during low tide during March to October. As the sandbank only appears at certain times and connects the land with the island, it is known as the "Matchmaking Island."

7. Experience a traditional method of fishing in Lake Hamana on a summer night

Dating back more than 100 years, "Takiya-Ryo" is a traditional form of fishing using just a spear and a net to catch fish attracted to lights placed underwater, commonly practiced in the waters of Lake Hamana, a salt water lake connected to the sea in western Shizuoka prefecture. You can take a boat at sunset and head out to the lake with a spear and net - your catch is then grilled and battered for a tempura dinner while you relax on a floating dining raft close to shore and enjoy a peaceful view of the lake.
