Traditional Fishing in the Ariake Sea "A unique method of fishing on mudflats"

This is Ariake Sea off the coast of Saga Prefecture. Tidepools here extend for up to 7 kilometers wide thanks to tidal ranges of up to 6 meters, the greatest tidal range in Japan. Fishermen use the tidepools a traditional fishing method called Mutsukake, which can only be found in the Ariake Sea. The target of these fishing efforts is the mudskipper, which they catch by throwing unbaited hooks at the fish and reeling them in.

"Doors to explore 'NIPPON'", a special program that showcases scenes hand-picked from NHK's "SHIN NIHON FUDOKI", a show that conveys the beautiful scenery and profound culture of Japan, is screened on five TV monitors installed in the departure area of Haneda Airport.
