The north wind calmed down, but the ground temperature also dropped down to 19C!

The cold front has covered Japan and looks like it was cold everywhere in the country.

But Okinawa was the only prefecture with a ground temperature above 10C, so we can’t complain about this!


Today we started with Taketomi Island.

The sea condition was still a bit rough, but it was very calm and clear under the water.

Welcome to the winter wonderland!



We were thinking of going down to Kuroshima today but decided to go up north to the Nagura Bay area based on the sea condition.

And it wasn’t a bad choice at all and we all enjoyed the beautiful corals and tropical fish.


The wind is forecasted to calm down further tomorrow.

Let’s enjoy winter diving!
