Hate early morning wake-ups? Fisherman's Call will let you start your day by chatting with one of the fishermen fishing in the Sanriku coast of Japan

The Fisherman Japan organization has created a new way to wake-up early mornings: by getting a phone call from a working fisherman in a service called Fisherman’s Call. The fishermen often begin their days before the break of dawn—which means a 6am wake up call is an easy task.

You can sign up for the free service through the end of May—request a specific fisherman, fill-out a quick questionnaire with your basic info, and wait for your call (it will be in Japanese). The service is part of a PR effort to increase the connection between Japan’s younger generations, and the more traditional workforce of the fishing industry.
