I’m in charge of the event of searching sea slugs today.
The number of sea slug is usually getting increasing in winter.

Today, I can find rare sea slug.
The name is “Placida barackobamai”.

I have never met before.
When I found it, I think it is seaweed or Polyps.

Now, there are many “Pikachu” in Kushimoto.

You can meet various size of them now.

And then, there is Warty frogfish.

The size is 1cm.So It’s so cute(^^)

The number of guest is fewer than summer season.
So, The winter season is best season to dive in your pace.

The W.temp is 18 degrees.
So, you might be able to dive with wetsuit.

We took a four day off in this weekdays.
So, I went to dive for searching underwater.

The w.temp is 18 degree and the visibility is 15m.
The sea water is very clear(^^)

The visibility is good but I look for macro creatures.

In winter, the number of Japapig is  usually increasing.

It is 5mm.
When I look for other sea slugs, It suddenly appears!!!

Usually, its size is about 1cm.

Recently, This sea slug is getting more.
It is called “Pikachu” in Japanese.

Don’t you think it is similar to Pikachu-Pokemon??

Also, we can observe it in winter.

Most Japanese diver call it “Pink-chan”.
The face is so cute!!!

But it is hard to observe it with eyes, so if you want to observe its details, you should use camera.

Tomorrow is weekend, I will search for various of sea slug in a whole day!!!

I wonder if I will be able to find many sea slugs tomorrow.

See you then(^^)/

Happy new year!!
It’s the year-end and New year holidays in Japan.

So, many guest come to our shop.
The sea condition has been good during that period.

The water temperature is about 18 degree.

Some Anther-fish is nuptial colored.
It’s very beautiful !!

In other dive point, we can observe this fish.

It looks like gold medal.
They usually live the dark place.

If you want to observe it well, I recommend you to bring underwater light.

In January, the number of the sea slug that is called “Pikachu” has increased .

It is similar to Pokemon Pikachu, isn’t it??

A winter season is easier to meet than summer season.
It is one of the most popular spices in Japan.

As the year changes, I think the impact of the coronavirus will decrease, so please include diving in Kushimoto as one of year activities.

Thank you for reading our blog.
See you next blog!!

Bye(^^)/
