Fun family day

Our whole family enjoyed this experience very much. The bus trip through the suburbs of Sapporo was quite short, and after allowing participants to change into waterproof pants and boots, we were out on the ice. We had a short session explaining safety, how to bait the hooks and have the best chances of catching fish before trying it ourselves. The tents were essential to shelter from the chilly wind,and we all managed to catch fish (our 10 year old managed to catch 15!) and had a go at drilling holes in the ice. When cooked up in the special soy-tempura batter the fish were absolutely delicious, as was the sizzling beef steak lunch we returned to the restaurant to enjoy. We were back to central Sapporo with plenty of time to spend sightseeing. We are a family of 2 adults and 4 children ranging from 8 to 14 years old - it would be important for children to be able to follow instructions to avoid injury from the fish hooks to fully appreciate this activity.
