It was heavy rain yesterday but Today is sunny day.
So, we can enjoy diving!!
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.
Second one is this.
The eyes is very cute(^^)
It’s tiny. The size is 2mm.
I like this form.
Of course, you can also see schools of fish.
Recently, the number of inquiries from overseas has increased.
I’m glad you to read my blog. We’re waiting for you to visit us.
See you then(^^)/
I’ll show you some schools of fishes.

I didn’t write blog for a long time.
Then, Today I went to research dive.
I think I showed you macro creatures recently.
So, I will show you schools of fishes today.
Now, there are so many fishes in bayside dive point.
There are Russell’s snapper, yellow stripe goat fish, Banded boar fish and so on.
I think this place is the best for taking a pic of schools of fishes or observing them.
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.
It looks like aurora. Don’t you think so?
Of course, there are also so many macro creatures.
Now, the number of emperor shrimp is increasing .
At the end of dive, I can meet lion fish on the top of rock.
It’s so big!!
The visibility is very good and you must be going to enjoy diving!!
I’m looking forward you to come to our shop!!
Bye for now!!

Today’s guest said that he had never seen this shrimp.
The shrimp is called “Laomenes cornutus”.
It’s rare shrimp in Kushimoto.
And he also favorites “Short-bodied pipe fish”.
There are beautiful seaweed behind this fish.
I like this picture (^^)
Then, I joined the group that is called ” Nudibranch lovers’ association”.
The group have five members. And the theme of this group is searching many Nudibranchs in Kushimoto area.
So, I try to look for more Nudibranchs as much as I can.
If you are interested in Nudibranchs, Please come to our shops.
I wanna look for Nudibranch with you.
After the effects of COVID-19 have diminished , I will do my best guests from overseas to enjoy diving in Kushimoto!!!
So, If you will be able to visit Japan, please come and visit our shop!!

There are so many Whitesaddle goatfishes in Kushimoto now.
So, we took a pic of it.
There are a thousand of this fish in this area, I guess.
You can enjoy taking photographs, I think.
And, I want to recommend you this place.
The situation is so beautiful, isn’t it?
In kushimoto, there are big coral that color is red.
The color type is so beautiful.
So, this situation is one of popular point in Kushimoto area.
Last, I show you a surprising sight.
It is the scene that a moray is attacking to Lobster .
The moray bite lobster very hard.
I was so excited to see such a situation (^^)

A strong westerly wind has continued since last night.
So, the wave are getting higher.
For that reason, we can go to Sumisaki area in the morning but we cannot go to the area again.
We have been diving in “Sanbira” where the waves are hard to rise for next dive.
There are many kinds of corals. So, the view is so wonderful!!
And there are many butterfly fish in the corals.
If you go to deeper area in this point, you may be able to meet “Gymnura japonica”.
We could meet it today!!
It is difficult to find this ray because it hides in the sand.
When we search this ray, we also meet small Red Lionfish.
The fins is so beautiful!! So, I like this fish.
How about you?
In addition, there were many kinds of creatures such as shrimp and Nudibranch in “Sanbira”.
I wanna take a movie in this point with using GoPro.
I think I can take a movie of coral reef and fishes that seems like southern ocean.
When I finish taking movie, I update it at Youtube.
If you want, please watch it.
Forecast said the sea condition will be getting better tomorrow.
So I think you will be able to enjoy diving more in Kushimoto!!
