As part of the series exploring Japan, Euronews went in search of the best place for scuba dive enthusiasts.

Okinawa are Japan’s most southern islands and underneath the waters hides a surprise. The water is calm and perfectly clear. When you explore below the surface you find beautiful coral reefs which are teeming with wildlife. There are some species which live in the reefs that are almost impossible to find elsewhere.

Amongst the reefs are clownfish and sea turtles. Our dive guide Yoichi Miyahira explained there is even the chance of spotting some bigger fish: “There are plenty of small islands around here, and the life underwater is extremely diverse. If you sail a bit farther away from inhabited islands, you can even spot humpback whales.”
