Visit a Fishing Gear Business(ASAYA Co., Ltd.)

Visit a legendary fishing gear business that has supported the work of local fishermen for over 160 years

ASAYA Co., Ltd. is a fishing gear business with a long heritage founded in 1850.

Under the philosophy of “Good fishing gear that contributes to fishermen’s profits,” they support the fishing industry of the Sanriku coast.

The Great East Japan Earthquake in 2011 completely destroyed and washed away their four sales centers in Kesennuma, Ishinomaki, Kamaishi, and Miyako. However, the company has continued to operate their business in order to support the revival of the fishing industry, and has continued to engage in their work while constantly staying attuned to the needs of the industry.

This program offers a close-up look at the fishing industry by introducing you to fishing gear that you don’t see normally, and teaches you about the history and culture of the fishing industry of the Sanriku coast.
