Notice of Temporary Closure

April 6, 2020



In light of the current COVID 19 crisis, we are closing our operation for the period of April 6th thru 25th.


We will evaluate the situation again around April 20th, and decide if we will reopen from April 26th.


No case of COVID 19 has yet been reported in Ishigaki, and we have been taking standard measures of protection, as is usually the case for any other business now in the island.


Despite the government’s measure to control the outbreak, the risk of further spread has clearly risen during the past week, as the number of patients started to show exponential increase particularly in the metropolitan area.


Many of our guests visit Ishigaki for the sole purpose of diving, and we believe we now need to re-evaluate our responsibility. Our responsibility has been to help our guests make memories of lifetime, but we now believe this can be better accomplished by asking cooperation among our guests to postpone their visits for now.


It is our strong desire that this crisis will come to an end as soon as possible, and the only way we can contribute to this happening is to close our business for now, and ask our guests to stay home.


We are truly sorry for inconveniences cased. Our prayer is with you all who are affected by this crisis.


Thank you for your understanding.
