Ukai is a method of fishing with trained sea birds called cormorants. It dates back to over a thousand years ago in Japan. Ukai is done at night from long wooden boats lit with lanterns. A master fisherman controls up to twelve birds on leashes as they swim along the side of the boat and dive to catch the fish. Our guide told us these birds were in training for the Ukai period of July- September. I hope they all made it.
