Weather news said raining season “Tsuyu-season” in Okinawa area started from today. But it was blue sky in Ishigaki whole day!

Water temperature has already gone up to 27 C. It should be a bit lower in May… which really makes us worried that it might be too hot for coral this summer 🙁

We tried Manta Point again since we couldn’t see Manta yesterday. But no luck… :((
We enjoyed sea life hiding inside coral while we were waiting for Manta.

Panari Manta Point has a bit different fish types and distribution from Ishigaki Area.

Today we got to see Scrawled butterflyfish there. It is so rare that i cannot even remember when i saw it last time.

We are planning to go out farther island if the sea is clam. Hopefully.
