Fishing in downtown Tokyo

I first realized how much Japanese people are interested in fishing when I saw the amount of fishing video games produced in Japan. Many of my coworkers go fishing on weekends, some of them head to the seashore by car, however most of them go to Yotsuya pool, where fish are bred so that customers catch them. The other day strolling near the new Tokyo Sky Tree we came across some kind of artificial pool for fishing enthusiasts. It looked really peaceful.

We ended up our walk just next to the Tokyo Sky Tree.

    thats actually pretty cool. Fishing is about the only time i feel very relaxed (the only time it isn’t relaxing is when a fish shakes the hook or random people ask a million questions). What are they catching in those pools? (carp?)
