How is your fishing !? Do you know "Lake Biwa" in Japan ??


It's one of the most famous bass fishing field all over the world.

Lately, Many foreign anglers are coming to Lake Biwa.

Why ??


Lake Biwa has IGFA world tie record of Largemouth Bass on 2nd July, 2009.

Its weight 10.12 kg (22 lb 4 oz) and length 73.5cm. Sooooo Crazy !!!

How should you go there ??

It takes 2 hours from "Kansai International Airport" to "Lake Biwa".

And a half hour from "Kyoto". It's very close, you know !?

If you will stay at Kyoto, it's too easy to do bass fishing in world record lake.
