    Kagoshima Kumage-gun Yakushimacho Miyanoura 2473-294
    This diving service located about a 15-minute drive from Yakushima Airport. It offers easy-going and laid back diving tours with a focus on enjoying fish watching and underwater photography in the seas of Yakushima Island. The guide who leads each tour sees his role as an interpreter of nature. He says that diving was his passion before it was his job, so he continues to dive the seas of Yakushima Island every day regardless of whether he has any guests. The company's selling point is the broad knowledge and easy-to-understand commentary of a guide whose hobbies are wildlife observation and undersea photography.

    This company, located in the hamlet of Kunetsu along the Oshima Straits, provides experiences that give visitors a generous sampling of the attractions of the subtropical island of Amami Oshima Island, including snorkeling tours and nature experiences.

Every year, from December to April, visitors have an opportunity to swim with the humpback whales that come here to raise their young.

    If youre in Amami, going diving, snorkeling or whale watching with Kohollo is a must do! This was the highlight of my time in Amami. The owners are the kindest people (speak a bit of English too...

Kagoshima Areas

around-area-map

Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
