Located in the very south of the Honshu region of Japan, Kushimoto is one of the finest diving spots in the country, and is home to the northernmost coral reef in the world. Kushimoto is home to over 20 diving shops, with courses available for divers of all skill levels. So whether you want the full beginner's experience, or you'd rather take a boat offshore and dive a bit more freely, there's something for everyone to enjoy.

  • Aimi

    Our guide speaks English and carefully explains how to scuba dive for first timers and certified diving. The beach is a gradual decline from 1 to 6 meters. There is finger coral on the coast.

  • Benjamin Nicholson

    The instructor was very knowledgeable, with excellent English.

  • Fernando

    Instructor was great but we were not able to scuba dive!

  • Kigouya

    The instructor’s superb English ability and knowledge and expertise gives confidence to the potential students.
    Due to the condition of the ocean we were unable to actually try the experience, however, I’m very interested to go back on my own and try it this summer.
