Although we see some Christmas decoration in Ishigaki, it is not as much as you see in big cities of Japan such as Tokyo or Osaka. If you want to see some Christmas-like decoration, you may want to go under the water!



Our DSD guests were from Hong Kong! Unfortunately we couldn’t make it to sea turtle, but hope you will have another chance in the future!


We couldn’t find any turtle in the morning dives, so our fun diving team went back for another dive in the afternoon, and found two big Green turtles! Glad you guys made it!


Our Fun Diving team also saw spawning of Giant cuttlefish! One female was laying eggs in the coral branch.


Giant cuttlefish is not shy. You can get close, if you approach slowly.


There were lots of eggs in the coral branch!



Looks like the season has started 🙂
