SCUBA DIVING

スキューバダイビング[SUKYŪBA-DAIBINGU]

Scuba diving can also be enjoyed all year round in many places in Japan, a home to a large number of enthusiastic divers. Although scuba diving within the country usually requires a license, you can learn to dive by participating in a day tour. Japan is known to have four distinct seasons, and different seasons offer different views and experiences not only on land but also under water. Aya, a veteran diver, loves diving in winter because there is less plankton and higher transparency. Yesterday, she had a thrilling encounter with a mola mola (ocean sunfish)!
