Some History... Translation Needed

Tenkara is a new type of fishing to the US, and information (particularly in English) is sparse. This is the place to build a knowledge base of Tenkara.

Some History... Translation Needed

Postby GregM » Sat Mar 23, 2013 6:17 am

On the Tenkara-Fisher forum is a reference to a YouTube video which looks interesting but is narrated in Japanese, a language I do not know. It is Part 1, and there is a Part 2.

Does anyone know if there is an english version?

Is this video referenced anywhere here?

Hi Greg, sorry I didn't post something sooner. This is an older video of Masami Sakakibara, (aka Tenkara No Oni) fishing. He's considered to be one of the most skilled tenkara masters in Japan. If you search his name on you tube you can find a lot of good videos to watch, but almost none in English.

Here is a link to his YouTube page, mostly short videos of him and members of his school casting.

Here is link to video Daniel shot, it at least has some English subtitles:

Finally, here is a link to his English blog site. Lots of interesting information and you may find some usable explanations of what you're seeing in the videos:
