The summer of Toi, where various pleasures await along with the old-fashioned nature. There are many activities and events that will make your time with your loved ones even more special. This time, we will introduce in detail how to enjoy summer in Toi, which is especially recommended.

Flying fish scooping: Encounter with nature of fish

There are many things to enjoy in Toi throughout the year, but you can't miss the "flying fish scooping" from early June to early July. Flying fish, as the name suggests, are marine organisms that have the unique ability to fly on the water surface for a long time, and are about 30 to 40 cm in length. They live mainly on plankton near the surface of the sea.

The ecology of flying fish, which can be said to be a drama in the natural world, jumps out to the surface of the water to escape from the danger they feel, and then they fly long distances. This is where the name comes from. And this flying fish, which inhabits the seas all over Japan in abundance, is said to be in season in the summer and the catch is very large.

This “flying fish scooping” experience is an experiential activity filled with extraordinary thrills and fun, where you get on a boat and scoop up flying fish with a tamo . Flying fish are a kind of migratory fish, so they do not stay in one place, but the fishermen will find the best spots with their many years of experience and knowledge.
Then, I scoop up the flying fish that are attracted to the light and float on the surface of the water. Seasonal flying fish can be enjoyed fresh as sashimi or fried. The event runs every Friday and Saturday through Saturday, July 2nd .
