I go to diving two times today.
Today’s guest have a macro camera.

So, I look for many kind of small creatures.
Recently, we can see many pigmy seahorse.

The size is about 5mm~1cm.
That is very small and so cute.

Today, there’re five pigmy seahorse in the same place.
I was surprised!!!

The most impressive creature the guest saw today is this crab.


Could you find out it??
Doesn’t it look like Comatulida? The name is Hairy Shrimp.

In the last dive, we can find out rare fish.
The fish is Ghost pipe fish!!

I wanna take a picture by myself…
The soft coral behind the fish is so beautiful.

There are many kinds of creatures in Kushimoto recently.
For example, seaslugs, Shrimps, small fishes, turtle and so on.

You cannot see everything in a day I guess.

The visibility is getting clear.
Please come to Kushimoto and our shop!!

Recently, Kushimoto’s diving area is closed due to strong wind and waves.
But, we can dive in Kushimoto  today because the wind is getting weaker.

At last month, I always look for Nudibranch.
So, it seems that the scale of the size when  looking at creatures has shifted…haha

When I introduced  some Nudibranch, I wrote this Nudibranch is big!!
But, the guest don’t think the Nudibranch is big.

I used to look four like this size.

the size is about 5mm.
I have to fix my scale….

Then, I will show you beautiful seaweed.

This seaweed can only be seen in five area in Japan, including Kushimoto.
Don’t you think this is so beautiful?

You can see it from now to June.
Please come and see it.

There are many kind of creatures now.
So, you must be able to enjoy diving in Kushimoto.

I update some pics in our Instagram.
Please follow our Instagram account.
