  • For underwater adventures, head down to the southern islands of Okinawa or Kyushu. The crystal-clear waters and warm temperatures attract many divers, who come not only to see the marine life but also to explore underwater ruins and Yurigahama sand bar, Kagoshimawrecks from World War II. Visit Yurigahama sand bar (pictured right) in Kagoshima prefecture for truly sensational underwater (and overwater) views.
    The Izu Islands are a string of seven islands floating in the Pacific Ocean south of Tokyo. They form part of the Fuji volcanic belt. Their moderate climate makes them the perfect destination for lovers of marine sports, including scuba diving.
    The Ogasawara Islands are 25 hour boat ride away from Tokyo, south of the Izu Islands out in the Pacific Ocean. The islands’ remoteness provides some unique flora and fauna on land and underwater, the crystal clear waters will reveal spectacular marine life and beautiful coral reefs.
