Sep. 1 BOSAI-NO-HI (Disaster Prevention Day)
Disaster Prevention Day was established in 1960 in order for us Japanese to recognize more deeply the disaster caused by typhoons, tidal waves, earthquakes, tsunami etc., and prepare ourselves for how to cope with them. A week from August 30 to Sept. 5 is called Disaster Prevention Week, during which disaster drills are held in many districts. It is also a time to make sure we have emergency supplies in our homes and that we know where the closest evacuation center is.
-Sept. 20 UKAI(Cormorant Fishing) on the Hijikawa (river) Ozu City
Watching Ukai from a boat
The tradition of fishing with cormorants goes back at least a thousand years. In Ozu it started as a tourist attraction in 1957 and now it is one of the three most famous ukai spots in Japan. The fishing is done from a boat called u-bune, which is lit by torches as it sails down the Hiji-kawa, which runs through Ozu. Cormorant fishermen called usho, beat the sides of the boats to encourage trained cormorants to catch fish. They are drawn by long strings attached to rings around the birds’ necks, which prevent them from swallowing fish. When a cormorant makes a catch a fisherman pulls the bird in and has it cough up the fish on the boat. You can watch from special sightseeing boats called yakata-bune. The fare is as follows:
Daytime Every Sunday, June to Sep. (12:00-13:30)
Adults, high and junior high 4,000 yen Children 2,500 yen (including meals)
Night June 1 to Sep. 20 (18:00-20:30)
Adults, high and junior high 6,000 yen Children 4,500 yen (including meals and tea)
You need to make a reservation in advance at Ozu Machinoeki Asamoya (Tel. 0893-57-6655). The boarding area is near Garyu-sanso, about a ten-minute walk from the Route 56 bridge crossing the Hijikawa.
Transportation: Take an Iyotetsu bus bound for Yawatahama from Shieki, gate #4, and get off at Ozu Honmachi, a 90-minute ride. Or take a JR express train from Matsuyama and get off at Ozu, a 40-minute ride. From Ozu Station take a taxi or walk for 30 minutes.
