It will be more beautiful if you take a picture so that the background is black.

In spring season( March-May), you can see various of underwater macro creatures in Kushimoto. Of course, the school of fishes as well.

By the way, From March 22nd, we will hold a campaign where the rental fee for drysuit will be free.

I go to diving  for observing goby and sea slug today.

In the first dive, we looked for some goby that lives with shrimps.

This goby is very shy, so when you get closer to them, you have to move slowly as much as you can.

As for sea slugs, we can find rare sea slugs.
Can you notice where the sea slug is?

The sea slug is good at hiding.
I’m so happy when I find out this.

By the way, this is the hidden sea slug in the picture.

In this year, the number of White-caudal chromis is more than usual.
The color is yellow, so it’s so beautiful!!

When you make a safety stop, you can see this situation in sunny day.
