We had Oni-class this weekend.

Thank you very much to everyone who came all the way from Kyoto and Tokyo,



The weather was nice. Some people were in just T-shirt during the day.

We haven’t been to the mountains for a long time.

The fresh air is so nice.

The buds were coming out and we could feel that spring was coming.

It looks like there was a lot of snow.


The river water was very cold.


We knew it that it was a bit early for Tenkara.


Let’s fish. Practice! Practice!

    It would be an honor to have the opportunity to join your 2014 class. Is it possible? I am not a good fisherman, but would do my best to learn. My joy is simplicity.

    Hello Scott. Thank you very much for you message and for your enthusiasm towards Tenkara.
    We apologize for our delay in response. The translator was quite busy this week…
    Yes we’re planning on visiting the Tenkara summit of 2014 and very much looking forward to it.
    We’ll be holding lectures through our season in Japan from March to September as usual as well as a trip to Italy and if you can join us at any of those, you’ll be more than welcome.

    Your willingness to improve is the first and the most important step to becoming a great angler so it means a lot that you have sent us this message! It is a small Tenkara world and we’re sure we’ll get to meet one day and fish together.

    Thank you again for your message.

    Masami Sakakibara and Team Oni
