Beautiful weather!

Ground temperature rose to 27C, and it was almost hot!

Today we focused on Taketomi Island, located around 5km west from Ishigaki.

There are variety of dive points mainly on the south of the island, with wide variety of dive styles.



Although there are wide variety of sea life here, there were tons of Fusiliers swimming around here!

Fusilier is the most popular fish of Okinawa, and deep fried Fusilier (Gurukun) is one of the most popular dish among local Izakaya 🙂


Visibility was great as usual!


We will go to the Manta Point tomorrow 🙂
