In 2013 I had the wonderful opportunity to visit and fish the Itoshiro river with Masami Sakakibara and Go Ishii as Sakakibara-san's interpreter. Satoshi Miwa and I were traveling together and drove up to the Itoshiro from fishing around Takayama and staying at the historic villages of Shirakawa-go and Gokayama. Miwa-san fishes a fly rod (only) and wrote a story about our trip. Subsequently, Miwa-san returned at a later date to help with translation services and more fishing.
