Hakodate Octopus expeditions

Hello, anyone knows information on the 2-hour Octopus expedition in Hakodate, such as timetable and reservation. I cannot find anything about this expedition via internet. What I got is the address only: 24-1 Bentenmachi. Thank you very much for any advice!

What is this Octopus expedition? Is it a tour excursion or octopus fishing (catching) ? Where did you find out about this? Website? Where did you get the address from? What did they say about schedules?

Two hour Octopus Fishing is available at Port of Hakodate until Octopus 31, woops, October 31.

English page above is confusing. Dont know where is the translation: The fishing boat is No. 18 Kinryumaru at Sumiyoshi Fishing Port located the other side of peninsula. Address:

39-8 Aoyagi-cho, Hakodate city

24-1 Bentenmachi is the address of this sea weed shop and factory. Dont know this guy sets up expedition for you.

Click back to Map, then scroll to south to locate Sumiyoshi Fishing Port. Fishing boat leaves the pier either 9:00 in the morning and/ or 3:00 in the afternoon. Fee is 6000 yen including boat chartering, fishing tools, life jacket and insurance. Cooking fee is separate 500 yen on boat? Or a couple of restauratants to bring in will be recommended.
