Shopping at Japanese grocery supermarket in Japan

It has been such a long time. I haven’t been to Japanese grocery supermarket in Japan !!! It’s so interesting and so fun to see the foods, products, packaging, the way products are line uped .  I know I am 100% Japanese but, since I live in out side of Japan. More than 1/2 of my life.  So, everything in Japan is fresh for me.

Even I feel this way, so, if you are non Japanese. And if you visit in Japan. I am sure, you will same way as I feel !

日本のスーパーすっごい久しぶり〜〜。スッゴイ楽しい〜〜。 面白い物、興味ある物でいっぱいだ〜〜!

1st time fishing at Urado bay,Kochi city in Japan. I tried to fish dream mystery fish AKAME (Japanese Barramundi) with Gray Ghost fishing guide service. Of course, Akame is not a easy fishing. Zero bite zero fish.
but, nice size Halibut bite my Recipro. It was not Akame. But. So happy to meet My fast Urado bay fish !!!
I lean so many skill of fishing through tonight’s experiance. I will be back in Urado bay for Akame in near future. To meet with Akame oneday.

The tackle I was using for this fishing was almost same as Abazil Amazon fishing. Rod > Daiwa TD Travel 654XHFB-OS, Reel > Tatula HD, Line > Tounament 8 braid EVO 0.35mm, Leader > Zylon 1m
Thank you so much Mr.Yamahiro-san for tonight.

高知 浦戸湾 アカメ釣り体験にアタック。
当然、ミステリー魚 アカメはそう簡単に釣れてはくれない。(当然のこと!)
今回ガイドして頂いたGray Ghostのヤマヒロさんにアカメの習性、釣り方、ルアーの動かし方などなど、アカメ レクチャーして頂きながら、実釣! 当然ながらアカメには逢えなかったが、再度ここ浦戸湾に来る為の目的がひとつ増えた!
今回はとりあえず、浦戸湾のヒラメを一匹 ヤマヒロさん作のReciproでヒット! ターゲット魚では無いが、浦戸湾の魚に出逢えたので嬉しい一匹でしたッ!
ヤマヒロさん メルシーでした〜〜!






Daiwa TD travel 654XHFB-OS

“TD travel 654XHFB-OS” The rod I mainly used this year’s Amazon trip. I was really surprised the performance of this 4 pieces travel rod.
I was able to cast most of top water and Jerkbait lures. Such as Dr.Spock, Jon Pepino, Perversa, Biruta (21-52g) etc…
Full power over casting, Fighting 5 or 6 kg Peacock Bass was no problem at all.

Since the rod is so compact. The length of packed rod is only 60cm! I can put in my suitcase baggage. Or I can carry on some air plain with me.

Only my little advice is that “V-joint” is very nice. But, I highly recommend to check each connections at list each 50 casts or after boat navigation. Because of casting movement and boat navigation vibration may lose the connection parts.

I highly recommend this rod to person who are going to traveling for most of fresh water predator fish or some salt water lure fishing as your main rod.

My “TD travel 654XHFB-OS”set up information: reel > Tatula HD-200, Main line > Tounament 8 Braid Evo 0.35mm Multicolor, Shock leader line > Tournament Shock Leader Type N(nylon) 0.100m (just 80cm long)





Merry Christmas 2015

I wish your merry Christmas to all of you !!! And happy holiday season !!!



Brazil Amazon Kalua & Demeni boat hotel trip 2015

well well well !!!  2 weeks of 2015 Brazil Amazin Peacock Bass fishing is just finished !  It was my 1st time staying 2 weeks of fishing. It was long~~~~. But, it is nice long !

1st week was with Kalua hotel boat then 2nd week was with Demeni hotel Boat.    I will explain both hotel boat next time for more details.

This year, December 2015. The Water level of Rio Negro (Barcelos area) was extremely low !!!  Even local Guide has not seen for more than 10 years like this. Luckily our local guides are so well experience people with well equipped boat hotel.  We were able to have excellent fishing week !  (Thank you so much our local Organizer & Guides for working so hard for us !)

I always thought, water level is lower is always better…  But, that’s is not true….  If it is too low.  We can’t navigate the boat…

that’s way, this year it was very difficult to reach & access to the fishing spot such as upper river and lagoon.  (Until this week, it was the limitte water level. But, if it will continue no rain next 10 days.  It will be very very serious problem in beginning of January…

Thanks to our super Guides, once we reach to the lagoon.  It was just like paradise !!!  I guess, since not many people could not reach to the lagoon because of low water level situation.  Most of lagoon’s fish was active.  It was so lucky for us !

All of our member of this trip was very happy of the result of fishing this year .  And my self as well.  I was very happy of my fishing result for size & quantity !!!   Also I am very happy that my friend Kazz caught his personal record fish during this trip !

As every end of year I think.  It was very successful trip for my year end fishing trip of 2015 !!!

I will show more trip photos time by time.

Brazil trip December 2015

December is arrived !   That’s means Peacock Bass fishing trip is here~~!

This year, We will stay 2 sessions of trip.  1st week with our usual mother boat “Kalua”. 2nd week with “Demeni” This Demeni mother boat is smaller size than Kalua. So, We can go even far and shallow water area.  It will  be a good experience to try.

Latest local information is the water level is very low. It is almost same height as my 2012 Dec. trip. Which was excellent year.  But… Last one week. somehow water level rise 1m in 1 week. So, I am bit worried but, at some time, I am very excited this year trip.

This year, I am going to bring my usual rods + some 4p travel rods. I am very excited to use TD Travel 654XH for Biruta 110 & Perversa. (jerk bait lure).

All so, 9.1 XX High speed Zillion with RCS M power knobs will be super effective for High roller (Top water) for Ripping !

Tomorrow evening departure to Manaus Brazil !!!
