Japan Fishing Tackle News (JFTN) is a website that sends out all kinds of information on fishing in Japan. The site is extremely useful for those in the fishing gear industry outside of Japan, and for anglers visiting Japan.
JFTN releases information on new fishing gears, fishing stores, and fishing gear companies in Japan, types of fishing trending in Japan, fishing areas in Japan, and other information on Japan such as sightseeing and restaurants.
JFTN has English and Chinese (simplified) sites. Users can select the language on the upper right hand corner of the screen.
The map will especially be useful for visiting Japan. The initial version introduces information including fishing gear shops in western Japan (Osaka, Kyoto, Hyogo, Wakayama, and Shiga prefectures). It is also useful for those landing on the Kansai International Airport. The map will include information on wider areas in the future.
