Hello Yawai,

Many American bass fisherman are very grateful to the Japanese for producing wonderful products that we use every day. For example, I use Shimano reels, Keitech and Yamamoto baits, Seaguar lines, and Gamakatsu hooks.

And even though you joined this site to learn many techniques we use for catching bass in the USA, I and many colleagues are interested in methods used in Japan!

One thing I noticed is that  many Japanese products do not come to the USA right away, or at all. Can you tell us what is new there? And, are Japanese products much less expensive in Japan? Also, in Japan I hear there are special pay-to-fish urban man-made ponds stocked with big bass and lined with cement fishing stations, each with a bench for sitting and a net. Is that a common practice?

So I am hoping that some day you will start a forum thread on Bass Resource or introduce an article that informs American fisherman about Japanese bass culture and techniques. It could also be any good article in Japan that can be translated to English. Everyone always has much to learn about this fun sport.

I became proud of their products when I went on business trip to the bass pro shops ( in USA ).

Thanks.
I interested in winter season tips, like a Jacob Powroznik's underspin lure technique. Because it is strange method in Japan.

OK! Japan fishing show will take place this month. I introduce domestic or specific products mainly.

Japanese domestic products are more expensive in USA.
For example, My favorite reel "SS Air" ( which can cast as light as 1/16oz ),  $277 by Amazon Japan, $374.99 by *** (USA)
For example, OSP Blitz MR ( which is one of most popular crank bait in japan ), $14.0 by Amazon Japan, $19.9 by *** (USA)

Good News, the Japanese government conclude a partial customs-free treaty.  Also fishing tools are included that treaty.

Unfortunately that is not true of bass fishing.
There are carp or gibel fishing ponds which you said. We call it "tsuribori".
It is perfect way for old man's to kill time.
I attached "tsuribori" image.

I will try it.

Thanks.
