Guest house AMARGE is very popular for its fishing experience and Ama experience.

In the summer, fishermen catch seafood such as octopus and sea bream while Ama catch shellfish such as oysters and sea urchin.

During winter, fishermen catch blowfish, lobster and other seafoods including seaweed.

 

SInce what you can catch is dependent on the season, you can feel curious to learn the diferent fishing methods used by Ama-san and the types of seafood they catch. You can also enjoy seasonal seafood during meals if you wish. We have heard many delightful comments from guests who have tried fisherman's rice which is unique to the area.
