The article examines how folk methodologies for weather prediction in- fluence small-scale agricultural and fishing activities of a Japanese coastal community. Specifically, the article addresses some anthropological questions on how local fishermen predict the weather by developing two different fore- casting practices: takayama, a practical weather observation technique that combines the observation of the clouds with a traditional nautical technique for orientation at sea and, okite, a model-based weather prognostication used to forecast long-term weather trends for the following year.
