    The beauty of the best sea also star. No big hotels most minshuku, only one supermarket. As on the beautiful island of hope. There were a lot of foreign tourists. Was that I wanted to stay more!

    The first dive. I went along one is a rich diving experience, let's try with that and took me to think together. I couldn't hear the ears usually off in the plane, while the ears is not. I was concerned about sesoko Island, snorkeling (far in the snorkel dive) did, but over 10 years, so where ever possible. The dive shop, of course, had to ask those who are together on customers to dive very good people in the unspeakable than diving in one place, helpful. Seen turtles in the sea, seeing so many fish, Nemo had poked fingers in the mouth... air from the ocean is beautiful.... Photo taken at sea, but copyright... again, somewhere in clean like a photo album. I put on here is a photo from the top of the ship, great clarity. Love is the ocean here in Okinawa have come several times, but always swimming in the winter, but more beautiful Zamami Island water. The first dive was here. Boat on the island after the typhoon, was a three-day weekend, but the seats and back flap was the next on the island wanted to stay, I say.

    Air also plant rice, was a wondrous Island rather than the sea, and Japan a little different, in it's not foreign. Lovers of beautiful sea. Convenience stores have no such inconvenience can be enjoyed if (leisure). Stars are very beautiful. People of the island felt the island is relatively large. You want to go again.
