Summer Mobility Tour

Fly Fishing Adventure at the Headwaters
of the Toyohira River

HOME > Fly Fishing Adventure at the Headwaters of the Toyohira River


Trek through a deep, beautiful forest in Shikotsu-Toya National Park to a perfect spot at the upper reaches of the spectacular Toyohira River.
Try fly fishing. Read the current and feel the fish move!
Catch rainbow trout, white-spotted char and other fish.
A lunch of thin chilled noodles is served outdoors. The noodles are sometimes served nagashi style, with noodles in water flowing down a piece of bamboo that's cut longitudinally and set up like a slide. Catch the noodles as they pass by.
To warm you up from the cold outdoors, the last activity is open-air hot spring bathing amidst the natural splendor of Hoheikyo Onsen.
The stillness of the woods...the strength of the river current...the sounds of casting...the beautiful curve of the fishing line: You're sure to want to come back.
