Introducing Japan

Typically overlooked for other countries in the region, as far as diving is concerned, Japan is still a vast chain of islands and, as such, offers up several unique opportunities throughout the country. From the tropical dives of Okinawa to the ice dives of Hokkaido, Japan offers something for every diving style and taste.

Health and Safety

Japan is a very safe country for travelers with a keen eye to safety and human welfare. Tap water is drinkable and facilities are clean in almost every region.

Be Aware

One thing found throughout Japan is that people love to talk about the seasons. Just run with it. It also holds a very complex, simultaneously expressive and reserved culture that may be different from what you’re used to.

Costs

Things in general will be a bit more expensive in Japan than elsewhere in the region, but the quality level also goes up. Expect to pay $100+USD per dive, but have a very passionate and professional divemaster.
