Trout Fishing Near Tokyo!? Yes! Unbelievably Beautiful Place too!

Trout Fishing at Yatarou Kiyokawa... Just thirty minutes from Atsugi! And how I spent my Sunday today.... Heaven! What can I add/say about heaven?

Here's some photos.... There's nothing to add!

There are at least three big waterfalls like this

(These photos were all taken by me or my wife, Yuka, today. 
Please use as you wish - Screw Getty images!)

The road up to the fishing place. Beautiful!

View from just above the waterfall pictured above

This was a medium sized one. We caught twenty five rainbow trout 
in 3 hours! Wow!

This kid and his dad caught five that I saw

First fish of the day and a big one!

Beautiful and clean. Hard to believe that this place is 1 hour by car from Tokyo

Just after cleaning. What a catch!

Plenty of places to barbecue right by the river too!

Freshly caught and freshly cooked!

The kids just dig this place!

Another keeper! Ji-chan (grandpa) is catching fish like crazy too!

Sounds great.

Stunning! The waterfall, fish, everything. The tourism bureaucrats should pay you and other visitors who give away photos. (Better than wasting money on those signs you talked about.)

Beauty, Mike! Looks like fun. I caught a 20-pound rainbow trout up in Nikko - where the emperor used to fish! Frigging thing was a bitch to clean, as I lacked the skills to do it properly, as I dragged it home and tried to fry it, but discovered that it was so damn big, that I should have, to paraphrase Pink Floyd, cut it into little pieces! But I didn't, and instead, I got a semi raw trout sashimi meal that was not fit to be eaten by a stupid gaijin - uh, that's me.

I was hoping my parents never found out about this... But I can't live like this anymore; I can't live with hiding who I really am....
