The best places for diving in Japan

Discover some of the best diving in the world during your stay in Japan.

The diving in Japan is amongst the very best available anywhere in the world - just very few people are in the know and this makes it all the more appealing. Even if you are just stopping a few days in Tokyo you can head a couple of hours down to the Izu Peninsula where there are some great spots for shore dives. But the jewels in the crown of Japan's dive spots are to be found in the southern islands of the Okinawan archipelago - a dream destination for any dive enthusiast.
