The Kushimoto’s sea has very big waves and strong winds.
So, we cannot dive in Kushimoto area.

I went to other diving site which is called “Uchiura beach”.
It is first time to dive in this season.

There are usually many fishes in this point.

And there are also many kinds of macro creatures.


I could find out Pikachu sea slug.
I kept searching this sea slug for a month.

Finally, I can find it!!!
When I find it, I feel so happy!!!

And I met Lion fish that has beautiful fin!!
This fin is so beautiful, isn’t it??

At last dive, I met cattle fish.
When it feel stress or getting angry, its color change to beautiful color.

In winter season, the day which we cannot dive in Kushimoto area due to strong wind is getting more.

So, I think the time that going to Uchiura is more and more.
This point is so fun for diving.

Our dive site has so many diving point.
So, you can see various situations if you come to here.

Please come and visit us!!

See you then(^^)/

★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★

Today, there are high waves in Kushimoto area.
So, we go to Sue, Uchi-ura beach.

I go to there with a guest who haven’t  been to Sue before.
So, I introduced many kinds of creatures that lived in Sue as much as I can.

When I go to deeper area, I meet Big Angel shark.
I’m so happy to meet him at first!!

The Angel shark is swimming in front of us.
So, we can observe him easily(^^)

A herd of horse mackerel, which is a typical creatures in Sue area, also passed as ususal.
It is so dynamic !!

Please visit us to see this flock!!
Sometimes, Big yellowtails appears near the flock and preys on horse mackerel.

On the other hands, we can observe small creatures in Sue area too.
For example, cattle fish, Japanese pigmy seahorse and Octopus and so on.

The color of cattle fish is so beautiful .
It change the color when intimidating.  This is one of the most popular creature.

Then, we will be able to dive in Kushimoto tomorrow.
I hope W.temp is rising and the visibility is so good.
