  • Cape Maeda (Blue Cave)
    Life / Living / Hospital
    Okinawa Pref. Kunigamigunonnason Maeda 469-1
    This marine sports shop offers diving and snorkeling services on Cape Maeda located to the northwest of Onna Village. Maeda Cape is a popular spot with a cave called the Blue Cave, where sunlight that enters the ocean and is reflected on the sea floor dyes it a bright and beautiful blue. Characterized by the small number of people per guide, with one for every two to three people when diving and one for each snorkeling group, you will be able to enjoy yourself at your own pace. In addition, it is recommended for graduation and family trips.
  • Prime Scuba Ishigaki
    Life / Living / Hospital
    Okinawa Pref. Ishigakishi Maezato 345-9
    This diving school is located near Maesato Beach in southern Ishigaki Island. Ishigaki Island not only has beautiful oceans and various marine life but is a wonderful diving spot from the comfortably warm water temperature maintained throughout the year. The dive cruise covers the surrounding area including Ishigaki Island, Taketomi Island and Iriomote Island. In addition to license acquisition, the school caters to the various needs of everyone from beginners to pro, and it is possible to rent or bring your own equipment. All services are available all day long, and being able to enjoy a pleasant cruise on the large cruiser Blue Swan is appealing. In addition, service in English is also available.

    Life / Living / Hospital
    Okinawa Ishigaki-shi Nagura 1356-71
    This pottery is located along Prefectural Route 79 in Nagura, Ishigaki City. They create works of Ishigakiyaki, an original style of pottery. Ishigakiyaki expresses the blue of the oceans of Ishigaki Island by combining pottery glazed using the now-uncommon Yuteki Tenmoku technique with glasswork. Visitors can try their hand at making Ishigakiyaki, shisa figurines, and other items at one of their pottery classes (reservation required).

    その日は天候は良かったけれど、波と潮の流れはやや強めだった。慶良間へ行く間に結構揺れて、最初の1ダイブ目から、酔っていた。それに15年もブランクがあるので、機材も道具もウェットスーツも使い方をスッカリ忘れていた。 そうしたところを、インストラクターの方々には、実に親切にして頂きました。 何とか2ダイブ目に入ると、酔いも強くなったけれど、思い出す部分も大きい。 それで、調子に乗って3ダイブ目をトライ...

Okinawa Areas

around-area-map

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You’ve arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan’s most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
