About this sight

Well, here's the last thing you'd expect to be doing in Osaka – catching fish for prizes. Smack in the middle of Dotonbori, Tsuribori is where you go when you're tired of those boring ol' crane games.

The game is simple – choose how long you want to play, buy the corresponding ticket at the machine, hand it to the staff who then gives you your fishing gear. Catch as many fish from the indoor fish pond as you can to earn points that can be redeemed for prizes.

If fish don't do it for you, you can also try your hand at catching eel for a slight premium. People who have no previous fishing experience will find this quite a challenge, but half the fun of the place is watching your friends fumble around with the fishing rods while trying not to accidentally stab themselves with the hook.

It's a fun way to spend 30 minutes in Dotonbori, if only for the Instagram story.
