The holodays are over today.
Many guest came our shop during the holidays.

The visibility is so nice and the w.temp is warm in the holidays.

In winter season, Redlip Morwong gathers in a fixed place every year.
I don’t know why they gather here.

I think this fish is gathering for spawning.

This year’s zodiac is tiger in japan.
These fish is perfect for this year’s zodiac.

Recently, there are so many fishes in Kushimoto area.
Now we can enjoy diving!!!

The waves were high yesterday but today is a calm.
We can dive easier than yesterday.

Today, we practice to take a pictures  of macro creatures with using microscope mode by OLUMPUS.

When you take a picture of Nudibranchs, it is useful!!
This mode can shoot 1mm object.

As soon as I told the guest how to shoot in the morning,  he mastered the microscope  mode.

This size is 1mm. But, He took a perfect picture of it.
I was surprised at how quickly he could take a perfect picture .

We can also meet beautiful Nudibranch.

It is so beautiful, isn’t it?
When I find it, I’m so happy.

In the end , he took such a beautiful picture.

If you can master the microscope  mode, there will be more ways to enjoy diving, I think.

There aren’t many guests in the coming season, so it’s perfect for practicing.

Please come and visit us.

And a number of Nudibranchs are increasing recently.

Nudibranch is so colorful (^^)

And some Nudibranch is swimming.

Both of them is about 1cm.

We can dive in Kushimoto after a long time.

So, I  have checked if there are any underwater creatures left.
The creatures I’ve seen so far are  still living.

Today, we observe rare shrimp that is called “Kogashiraebi”  inJapanese.

Recently, there are many Nudibranchias in Kushimoto.
I’ll show you some Nudibranchia we met.

Besides small creatures, there are many attractions such as a school of fish.

But, we may be able to dive tomorrow only in this year due to heavy wind.
We are going to do three dives for a day.

Why is the sea rough during the New Year holidays……??
I hope the sea condition is getting better!!
