if you want to give fishing a try, then you must visit the Ichigaya Fishing Center. It is located in the center of Tokyo. You can also spot some exotic species in the aquarium shop in the area.
There is a mini-fishing pool where children can catch as many gold fish as they can in the allotted time. Once the haul is full, you have to put the fist back to the pond, but if you want to take it home, you need t o pay an additional 100 yen.
