Behind the clouds of the rainy season, summer is already there.

It was forecasted to be rainy again, but it turned out to be sunny♪

The ground temperature rose up to 30C, and it is almost time for me to switch to summer wetsuits!



Water visibility at Osaki was not perfect, but the sea creatures didn’t mind 🙂


A Leaf scorpionfish was enjoying the gentle current of Osaki.


A Devilfish.

Very good at camouflaging, and we need to be careful not to touch…


A juvenile Yaeyama blenny was so tiny!


A juvenile (?) Blue-eyed coral crab.

Blue eyes indeed.


Glossodoris hikuerensis – this nudibranch was huge!


Stars-and-stripes pufferfish.

A big overweight?


Corals and the seascapes were beautiful around Iriomote and Kayama…


This good weather will probably continue for a while.

Nice 🙂
