Ishigaki Jima (jima means island in Japanese) is situated in southern Japan being the main island of the Yaeyama Islands. It promises to be one of the best critter photography destinations in the country.
Japan is a dream for travellers from around the world who want to discover our beautiful culture, delicious food and exciting shopping. Surprising to many, however, is that Japan also has great diving from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south. Less well known – but equally fascinating – is Hachijo Island, an overnight sail south of Tokyo.
