See the 1000 year history of cormorant fishing in Arashiyama

Ukai that catches freshwater fish in bonfires with a traditional outfit of Kazaorie Eboshi .

It is said that the beginning of this fishing method in Arashiyama dates back to the Heian period, and it was one of the pleasures of the Heian nobles in summer.

The figure of ujo who controls cormorants in the dark while being lit up by fire is
very cool, and I can't help but admire their vivid hands.

It is a summer tradition of Arashiyama. Please visit there.
