I am planning my summer trip back home to Alabama to visit my family, but want to take a detour through Japan for some fishing.
I can get a cheap flight to Nagoya from here (Korea), or Tokyo as well, before bouncing over to the USA.
From Nagoya, it’s super duper easy to get up into Gifu, where there are lots of awesome little towns to use as a base- Gujo, Takayama, etc etc etc.
I have been talking to Jun Maeda and Go Ishii, neither is sure about their plans for June-July timeframe yet, but will try to meet up with one or both of them if possible.
Anybody have any specific intel or advice about these areas? My plan is suuuuuuuuuper rough draft at the moment. I would love to venture into the Kurobe Gorge, but that’s on the wrong side of Japan for where I can cheaply fly into, and don’t want to burn a bunch of Yen and time working my way over there.
Alternatively, what about down near Osaka/Kyoto? Basically I want to fly into one of the main air hubs (FUK, OSA, NGO, NRT) and get to some good fishing area(s) using public transportation. I could rent a car I guess, I forgot that my IDP should still be good.
