Tokyo's "fishing restaurant"! Here, you can get in on the action and catch your dinner. Make reservations if you intend to fish! You will have to purchase the bait and then whatever you catch, you'll have to pay for, at a discount, of course. If you aren't into fishing, you can simply order off the menu. It's all for the novel experience and the fun little celebrations when you do catch a fish. Understandably, it's not the cheapest fish but it is good fun especially with kids!

It's not the best value for money for the food, but, you get to catch your fish before you eat it. Admittedly catching the fish isn't the biggest challenge, but you can pick the fish you want to dine on and you're spared the gutting and preparation.

Your food is prepared as sushi, fried or just how you like it which again is a really unique aspect of this boat shaped restaurant. When you dine, you'll be surrounded by the catching pools.

This place is definitely a novelty -- in what other urban setting can you fish for your own food? In theory, it is interesting and it has touristic appeal but the stench here is strong and the fish definitely don't look healthy. It is very hard to catch your own fish. If you are really desperate for this experience -- best bet is to drop your hook below a hirame (flat fish) and yank up quickly. Almost impossible not to catch one.

Food is poor quality. Atmosphere is kitsch. Smell is horrific but you can get used to it.
