"Hiburi-ryo" (torchlight fishing)

“Hiburi-ryo” is a traditional fishing method in Kochi in which fishermen hit the surface of a river with rods under torchlight, surprise “ayu” sweetfish and chase them into a net set up in the river. Torch flames waving in the darkness are reflected on the surface of the river during the fishing. Such a summer feature can be seen in the Shimanto River, known as Japan’s last remaining limpid stream, and the Niyodo River, among other rivers in Kochi.
