Get yourself an exclusive meeting with the amazing ama (female free divers) in Mie Prefecture.

These ladies continue a centuries-old practice in order to dive for shellfish, without any sophisticated diving aids. By arranging a tour with the Kaito Yumin Club, you can meet the divers in their traditional huts for snacks or lunch, and discover the secrets of this traditional practice.
